Virginia Tech Thinkabit Grand Opening

The Virginia Tech Roanoke Center (VTRC) is excited to announce the grand opening of their Inspired by Qualcomm Thinkabit Lab on April 26 from 3 to 5 p.m.! The lab brings hands-on STEM learning to middle school students in an engaging, inviting and absurdly awesome learning environment. The lab is structured to open the doors for students to potential STEM-related careers, while nurturing their creativity through a makerspace.

Come find out what it’s all about on April 26! In the meantime, the VTRC is collecting any unwanted craft items to have in the lab for students to use. There is a donation box located on the 7th floor of the RHEC (just off the elevator) for ribbon, yarn, markers, buttons, legos, pipe cleaners, puzzle pieces and more! Reduce the clutter in your space and let your unwanted items spark the imagination of our students.

If you have questions about the lab or would like to sponsor a field trip for area students, please contact Lesa Hanlin at (540) 767-6100 or
