Despite its cultural relevance, quantum theory is not easy to teach due to the intrinsic conceptual complexity and the difficulty in setting-up and maintaining the experiments. In addition, most teachers are not familiar with the applications of quantum physics and quantum technologies, such as quantum computers, which deeply involve the concepts of quantum superposition and entanglement. To foster the development of quantum skills in high schools, we focus on testing entanglement through Bell's inequalities by designing teaching and learning activities incorporating both classical and quantum experimental exploration of correlated systems. We adopt the constructive alignment method for the curriculum design.
