Guest Post: LMP Education Trust Hosted World Quantum Day 2024 in New Delhi

By LMP Education Trust

April 14, 2024, will be remembered as a landmark day in India’s scientific annals, as the LMP Education Trust, Gurugram  proudly hosted World Quantum Day with the theme of “Raising a Quantum Ready Workforce”. The event emphasized the critical need to nurture a skilled workforce adept in harnessing the potential of the quantum revolution.

The initiative was spearheaded by the esteemed Prof M M Pant, who is at the forefront of integrating quantum sciences into the fabric of modern technology. The day-long event started at 10:00 AM to welcome a galaxy of distinguished speakers and eager attendees, setting the stage for a day rich in scientific discourse. A unique feature was the presence of school students, who would be the future quantum computing experts.

Chaired by Prof G D Sharma, the Inaugural Session saw Dr. Rattan Datta provide the opening remarks. He shared his experiences of bringing CRAY Supercomputer to India in the mid-1980s. Insights into the Indian National Quantum Mission were shared by Kartik Verma, and Mr. Kapil Murdia examined the implications of Quantum Disruption on the future of work. Mr Kartik Verma, a student at Basava International School in New Delhi, shared the details about Indian National Quantum Mission.

Subsequent sessions took deep dives into the quantum realm. Prof M M Pant presented an Overview of Quantum Technologies, and Prof PV Suresh explored the intersection of Quantum Artificial Intelligence with current tech trends. Dr. Ramesh C Sharma’s discourse on Quantum Biology revealed exciting intersections between quantum physics and biological systems.

The focus then shifted to developing a quantum-informed workforce, with Mr. Rahul Agarwal discussing the quantum readiness at the university stage, Dr. Bhavna Chibber addressing the preparation of school-aged children for a quantum future, and Dr. Sunil Kumar Pandey highlighting the importance of quantum knowledge for computer students. In this session, a group of school students shared their views about why they need to learn quantum computing beginning their school education. Gurpreet Kaur spoke on strategies for educators, employers, and policymakers.

The event rounded off with a pivotal segment on Parental Awareness for Quantum Readiness, led by Ms. Meenu Arora. The panelists for this session focussed on different stages of the School journey. Richa Malaviya focussed on the pre-school stage, even sharing board books by Chris Ferrie to stimulate pre-schoolers. Ritika Subhash created analogies of the learning process to Quantum processes.

It aimed to educate parents about the quantum revolution, equipping them to guide their children through the emerging quantum age.

World Quantum Day 2024 was enlightening, providing a platform for scholars, professionals, and the public to delve into the expansive possibilities of quantum science. The gathering was a significant step toward shaping the thought process of the present and future generations in this innovative field.
