Quantum Microscope Contest
A total of $15,000 in cash prizes will be awarded across five phases of the EWT Project to simulate the creation of particles, atoms and matter with classical physics, using an add-on and Blender's physics engine. The Quantum Microscope Add-On to Blender is an open source project.
Contest - Phase 1
The first phase of the project begins on September 1, 2020 and will award USD $2,500 to the winner and $500 to a runner up. Details of the contest requirements, dates, instructions and source code repository can be found here.
About the Project
To build and model the universe from the Planck scale to galactic scales requires an incredible number of mathematical computations to simulate particles and their interactions, yet the framework of nature and the physics of these interactions should be simple. Blender's physics engine provides a good base to begin this project, but it will take work from the community to accurately model subatomic particles.
