I made the comment in Istanbul on Saturday that there's no particular bit of knowledge that's foundational. Why, we could even start by teaching quantum mechanics to kids, I said. It was a bit of a quip, to be sure. But wouldn't you know, there's a book on teaching quantum mechanics to kids. "You might think that it’s a tall order to convey the weirdness of quantum correlations to kids, but there’s an insightful way to do this without the mathematical machinery of the theory by considering simulation games."
