Thinkabit World of Work and Robocrafting Labs

The mission of the Qualcomm® Thinkabit Lab™ at Virginia Tech, National Capital Region, is to serve Washington, D.C. area students, teachers, administrators, parents, and collaborators in technical career exploration and the hands-on electronic and programming foundations of IOT and Smart Cities sensors, actuators, and data collection and analysis. In doing so, we are preparing our future STEM workforce and our increasingly diverse, technology-driven community for jobs that may not yet exist.

Aisha is the Urban Alliance Intern of the Week

Urban Alliance recognized our own Aisha Ali this week.

UA Intern of the Week: Aisha Ali

Aisha interns at Qualcomm® Thinkabit Lab™ at Virginia Tech under the leadership of her mentor, Dr. Jim Egenrieder. Aisha’s mentor stated that she has emerged as a leader at Virginia Tech Lab. She is modest, but uncommonly thoughtful, intuitive, and competent in everything she tries. The Thinkabit Lab setting is admittedly more like graduate school or a tech startup than perhaps a traditional work place, but her mentor stated that she can thrive anywhere.

Her mentor also also stated that “Aisha is the go-to person for special research projects, but also a skilled designer, programmer, and troubleshooter that regularly volunteers to teach others. She has a great sense of humor and is thoroughly enjoyable as a collaborator.” Dr. Egenrieder looks forward to any opportunity to advance Aisha’s education and career interest. He stated, “I knows that she will make me proud to have been a very small part of her many inevitable successes.”
