Big Ideas for Little Minds

I’ll take you through a historical journey of my coming of age with digital software and what that experience has granted me. The lesson to be learned is that children will take advantage of the opportunities they are given, but only if their parents and teachers show genuine interest in the activities giving rise to those opportunities.

Twenty years from now, there will be a Quantum Technology equivalent of Bill Gates. That future leader is only a young child today. That child has an enthusiastic parent or teacher who models curiosity and provides access and opportunity to understand and play with new quantum technology. Hence, that child will come of age with next quantum technology revolution. But if the seeds are not sown today, they will never grow into the big ideas of tomorrow.

Chris Ferrie's Baby University series will be on sale prior to the talk.

Visitor parking is available in lot M for $6

*Ticket holders must be in their seats no later than 15 minutes prior to the start of the lecture. After this time, guests in the waiting line will be invited into the theatre to fill any empty seats.
