Learning Center

The Qualcomm® Thinkabit Lab™ Learning Center offers free online resources, developed to help adult instructors introduce coding and engineering to students.

Introducing Coding and Engineering

You’ll find details about the materials you will need, and step-by-step instructions for setting up an Arduino microcontroller and using a breadboard. Scroll down to access an array of coding activities that use LEDs and Servos. We have included challenges that students can complete to apply the knowledge they gained.

Exploring Career Choices

Qualcomm is a company of inventors comprised a global workforce that includes people with diverse skills, backgrounds, and cultures who are part of inventing the wireless world of the future.

The O*Net OnLine is a tool that that can be used to explore careers and their job descriptions.

Use the O*Net Interest Profiler to help students discover what their interests are and how they relate to the world of work.

O*NET OnLine is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment & Training Administration, and developed by the National Center for O*NET Development.
