We will discuss two programs that we have been running to introduce students to quantum concepts and the pathways into quantum careers. The Pathways to Quantum Summer Immersion Program introduces high school students to key quantum concepts and the jobs in quantum. The program is an immersive experience that includes a virtual program to build an understanding of key concepts and an in-person program that focuses on learning about quantum careers through site visits. The Quantum Pathways program was a one-day workshop pilot aimed at community college and early college students to introduce them to quantum key concepts and to help them understand how they could pursue a career in quantum. We will discuss the key elements of these programs and what we have learned about students’ thinking about quantum concepts and careers through these experiences.
