Quantum computing for the very curious - learning essay format

https://education-trails.glitch.me/ - this is a stupid little prototype I built to show how a “guided learning” UX could look and feel like. I quite quickly abandoned this because I think it’s an evolutionary dead end (too forced for one thing).
