Congratulations, Grace Watterson, for placing in the UGA Capturing Science Contest!

Saturday, May 8, 2021 - 2:10pm

Biochemistry & Molecular Biology major Grace Watterson was part of a team that won 4th place for their video Quantum Computers: Searching for the Future

In their animated video submission, Grace Watterson and others explore quantum computing, a topic that can be a bit of a head scratcher. The team has been collaborating since high school, and it shows. The video's narration is clear and compelling, and the visual storytelling is clever, skillful, and a delight to watch (and rewatch). We believe that these students succeed in their goal, stated in their cover letter, to “shed some light on a developing and intriguing topic” through visualization. For novices to quantum computing, the video serves as a wonderful introduction. It can also be an entertaining refresher to those already familiar to the topic. We hope to see Quantum Computers - Searching For the Future, and the teams' QuirkyQuark YouTube channel, reach an even wider audience. Written by contest judge Chandler Christoffel.
