Qualcomm® Thinkabit Lab™
The Qualcomm® Thinkabit Lab™ at the Virginia Tech Roanoke Center combines the expertise of Qualcomm® with Virginia Tech's rich resources to create an inclusive STEM environment for students. Their one-day field trip will be enriched by instruction on Arduino microcontrollers using breadboards, servos, circuitry, LEDs, and solar panels, while their creative side can use plastic, plush toys, glitter, and more to engineer their one-of-a-kind creation.
The Qualcomm® Thinkabit Lab™ experience is currently open to sixth-graders. Students will receive instruction from a Virginia Tech facilitator and have lunch provided at the Virginia Tech Roanoke Center.
Program participation is funded by Qualcomm® and our generous corporate sponsors. If you are interested in sponsoring a field trip for students or have questions about the lab, please email Don Pizzullo or call (540) 767-6100.
