  • Do you want to build robotic crafts?
  • Do you want to meet some real engineers, and learn what they do?
  • Do you want to make new friends and have fun with other students?
Thinkabit Lab Camp is a one-week STEM camp for girls and boys entering middle school and high school, which provides hands-on engineering project experience through Qualcomm’s Thinkabit Lab at the Michigan Engineering Zone in Midtown Detroit.
Campers will learn new skills while strengthening their scientific and mathematical understanding through hands-on engineering projects. You will have the opportunity to meet professional engineers, learn about engineering tools and their applications, explore the engineering design process, build your own projects, and meet new friends!
