We’re glad you asked! We've recently posted our Arduino Activities that we use with students at our summer camps in our Learning Center. Check there for activities involving LEDs and Servos and use the activities to create projects of your own!
Thinkabit Lab provides longer, deeper experiences for students in STEM through our summertime Qcamp program. The program is offered free of charge and accepts students who will be entering middle school in the fall. For highlights from our past Qcamps, visit our videos page for recaps of all our camps over the past 4 summers!
We try to host tours while class is in session. We think it’s very important that you see and feel for yourself how the Thinkabit Lab experience inspires students to explore the world of work around them and encourages and engages them through fun-filled, hands-on engineering experiences to pursue STEM-related education.

Since opening in 2014, the Thinkabit Lab at our San Diego headquarters has:
• Promoted STEM career awareness to more than 15,000 students, teachers and parents
• Hosted more than 500 classes and camps
• Built more than 7,000 robotic crafts.
• Collaborated with 16 school districts
As a company of inventors and technologists, we care deeply about STEM. It is part of who we are and the foundation for everything we do. We are committed to contributing to a successful, robust, diverse and expanding pool of talent in STEM fields. Therefore, we invest in sustainable, STEM programs that reach, inspire and engage students of all ages, at all levels and from all backgrounds.
In 2016 we began a collaboration with Virginia Tech, launching a Thinkabit Lab at their Northern Virginia Center in the National Capitol Region. Since opening its doors in September 2016, the Thinkabit Lab at Virginia Tech has hosted more than 4,000 students and more than 500 teachers. For more information on the Thinkabit Lab at Virginia Tech or to contact Jim Egenrieder, the director of the lab, please visit www.ThinkabitLab.com/VirginiaTech.
The Qualcomm® Thinkabit Lab™ provides students with a unique STEM experience and exposure to careers they may not know exist. It also provides an opportunity for educators to learn best practices for engaging students in STEM. Students engage in hands-on engineering activities that involve problem-solving, creativity and collaboration.
