Inside the Thinkabit Lab, students engage in fun and unique, hands-on engineering projects. Building on concepts discussed during the Qualcomm World of Work activities, students work in small groups as “start-up companies” and use the design process to create robotic creations that represent an IoT-based invention that can help others in the areas of consumer electronics, smart homes, smart cities, and voice and music.
Career Exploration at the Qualcomm® Thinkabit Lab™
Qualcomm is focused on building the wireless world of the future and aims to show students that they can be a part of inventing that future. Our signature Qualcomm World of Work activities expose students to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) concepts and careers that are essential to tomorrow’s workforce. Students discover their unique talents and the exciting possibilities that lay before them in areas such as invention, 5G, the Internet of Things (IoT) and creative robotics.

What People Are Saying
“The staff member from [our school] asked all students what they want to do after high school in order to better create their schedules for next year. Four of the five students responded by saying that they want to be an engineer. When I asked what inspired them to choose this path, all four students said it was because of their experience at the Thinkabit Lab and that they knew very little about engineering before this experience. Hearing from my students about their experience at the lab and having the chance to hear students talk about choosing engineering as a future career has been inspiring. The work that you are doing at the Thinkabit Lab is life-changing for so many of our young men and women.”
