A Quantum Adventure with Kitty Q

Nanotechnology sometimes involves a bit of quantum physics which can be used to describe the behaviors of electrons, atoms and molecules. The quantum world can be strange and fascinating since things don’t behave the way we think they should. Enter Kitty Q!

Do you know what happens when you put a kitty inside a box? Kitty Q will help you find out because the world in the box might be different from what you know. You might learn why tiny particles behave differently under different conditions. You might learn a letter that will make your math teacher uncomfortable. You might even learn how Kitty Q is different from any cat you know!

Queue up Kitty Q and you’ll learn about the quantum world! This game was developed with support from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research as part of “Research in Germany” and is completely free, without ads or purchases.
