Quantum technologies will be of great importance in the near future incomputing and cryptography techniques and information handling. This makes it interesting for the general population to acquire a minimum familiarity with its most fascinating aspects. All the material in this workshop has been made in open code by university students of the Faculty of Physics of the University of Barcelona.

The workshop consists of computer simulations of several experiments in which the quantum properties of matter are revealed. For example, the simulation of the movement of a set of ultra-cold atoms trapped in a potential well (analogous with the movement of a pendulum), the simulation of the movement of a soliton of anatomic gas at 0 K, and the simulation of a quantum Newton pendulum.
