End your Monday with this lecture by Dr. Scott K. Cushing on quantum entanglement, cars and toilet paper. Don’t be deterred by that 1:06:15 runtime! Around 18 minutes in you’ll find a short video introducing you to Dr. Cushing, his history and his work which is followed by the lecture at the 22 minute mark. Shout out to Dr. Cushing for the emphasis on mental health.
In this lecture, Cushing will discuss a less explored aspect of entanglement: what we can learn about both small and somewhat larger objects when they are forced to interact with entangled photons. The knowledge gained from these new tools could lead to cutting-edge technologies.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
