The first-ever exhibit on quantum information science breaks down the barriers through stories and interactive displays and looks at how the concepts are being harnessed to create technologies that will revolutionize and define the 21st century.

The exhibit was produced by the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo and is being presented by the Saskatchewan Science Centre.

“This exhibition is the first in a series of exciting events that we are bringing to the province as part of Innovation150, a nationwide celebration of Canada’s innovative past, present, and future,” Sandy Baumgartner, CEO of the Saskatchewan Science Centre, said.

“Being able to bring this exhibition to Saskatchewan, and having it hosted in Saskatoon, is a big part of providing accessible opportunities for the people of Saskatchewan.”
