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. VT-Thinkabit will work with like-minded teams, organizations and individuals interested in promoting curiosity, innovation, creativity, and students’ self-actualization and self-determination.

Poe Middle School STEAM Lab

Jessica Ittayem and her students are teaching us all kinds of new things in their Poe MS STEAM Lab, one of our first "Inspired by Qualcomm" Labs.  Her approach to Project-Based Learning hits all the metrics of student voice and choice, real -world problems, student autonomy, and real audiences.

Their ongoing weather unit featured a visit by WJLA/ABC 7 meteorologist Veronica Johnson.
