Abstract

The field of Quantum Science and Technologies (QST) has the potential to generate significant changes in every citizen’s lives, and so a carefully designed approach to its formal and informal education activities is essential. In this contribution, we reflect on the functions of outreach in developing the modern scientific mind, discuss its essential importance in the modern society of rapid technological development, and propose a novel framework, Culturo-scientific storytelling. In a manner consistent with Responsible Research Innovation, we propose tools to implement this narrative within the pilot project Quantum Technologies Education for Everyone (QUTE4E).
