Quantum is a city-wide STEAM education programme (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) inspired by the need for a first science centre in Romania.

Quantum’s role is to cultivate the appetite for science and innovation in the local community and to develop capacity in four major groups (teachers, museums, artists and industry) to engage in participatory activities and inquiry-based education.

We organize workshops and mediation programmes for educators and early career researchers, we run STEAM activities, including the Quantum Questions festival, and we promote citizen science through novel engagement formats.
