The day-long Qualcomm Thinkabit Lab experience at our headquarters in San Diego serves primarily 6th-8th graders throughout San Diego county. Thinkabit Lab collaborates directly with schools and school districts to schedule class visits. If you’re a parent, please contact the principal at your child’s school to express interest in having your child’s class visit Thinkabit Lab.
Thinkabit Lab is committed to building collaborations with public- and private-sector organizations throughout San Diego. Our STEM program has served over 12,000 students, teachers, and parents since opening in 2014.
We’re excited about your interest to create a Thinkabit Lab experience for your students, and we have an Inspired by Qualcomm® Thinkabit Lab™ program to help you do just that. We would love to talk with you and learn more about your organization, interests and goals for your makerspace.
We host tours for:
• Educators, principals and school administrators who may want to experience Thinkabit Lab prior to scheduling class visits or who may be interested in creating an Inspired by Thinkabit Lab of their own
• Community leaders who are interested in launching STEM programs for local youth and adults
Our coursework is designed for students that have had limited or no experience with engineering, but is just as engaging for students with prior experience with coding. The vast majority of our students have their first coding experience at Thinkabit Lab, as well as their first exposure to the career possibilities in these areas.
There is no charge for the day-long Thinkabit Lab experience at Qualcomm. Qualcomm supplies everything visiting classes need to code, collaborate and create robo-crafts, from laptop computers and microcontrollers to Servo motors, stuffed animals, hot glue and lots and lots of glitter. We also provide a healthy lunch. All of our lunches are nut-free and we offer vegetarian options as well. For other dietary restrictions, we kindly ask that the student bring their own lunch.
