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 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.
