STEM Education

We inspire the next generation of inventors and advance workforce development for STEM-related careers.

Our initiatives are designed to promote and improve STEM education at all levels and to expand upon opportunities for underrepresented students. Our Qualcomm® Thinkabit Lab™ inspires students of all cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds to imagine future careers in STEM by designing an invention that uses an Internet of Things solution to solve real-world problems. Our ongoing strategic collaboration with FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) provides hands-on experience with Qualcomm technology to engage students in more than 25 countries.
