Exploring Technical Careers and College, Programming, Engineering Design, Creative Robotics, and all Hands-On STEM Education Strategies
Virginia Tech's DC Metro Area Thinkabit Lab STEM Education and Workforce Development Programs is the longest-serving collaborator in the Qualcomm Thinkabit Lab network. The mission of our Thinkabit Lab 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. The VT-DC STEM Labs team will work with like-minded teams, organizations and individuals interested in promoting curiosity, innovation, creativity, and students’ self-actualization and self-determination.

Thinkabit Intern Wins First Place in Photo Contest
As part of Arlington's PRIME Internship program, Madelyn Wood was our very first Thinkabit Lab intern in Summer 2016, and she was involved in nearly every aspect of the Lab's construction. She even taught younger students programming and robocrafting.
This semester she won first place the Kaspar Awards for Excellence in the Arts for her photograph called Shadow Dancer.
