THINKABIT LAB FOCUS AREAS
Our projects give students a taste of what it is like to be an inventor and the excitement that can come from the process of invention and exploration. Projects include:
- Signature Experience: Students discover careers available at tech companies, engage in hands-on engineering activities, and collaborate to create an Internet of Things (IoT) inspired invention.
- Tech for Good: Students learn to use Bluetooth technology and take inspiration from Qualcomm® Wireless Reach™ initiatives to invent a solution to a real-world problem.
- Wearable Tech: Students explore their strengths, interests and values while learning to code LED lights and Servo motors and apply these skills to create an automated wearable.
- AgTech for Good: Students in agricultural communities utilize IoTbased technology to develop innovative solutions to local problems.
