Qcamp for Girls in STEM Qcamp is a free-of-charge, intensive summer camp, designed to introduce and solidify middle school students’ interest in STEM fields. Qcamp launched in 2014 with 30 pre-sixth grade girls recruited from the San Diego Unified School District to participate in a two-week summer camp in Qualcomm’s Thinkabit Lab. Because our goal was long-term engagement with every girl, we invited all of the campers back yearly. All of the girls who participated in 2014 returned in 2015 and 2016. Following the success that the first cohort had, in 2016 Qcamp expanded its reach and offered an additional two-week session for a new cohort of pre-sixth grade girls; a one-week, first-ever session for pre-sixth grade girls and boys; and a first-ever Qcamp for Girls in China.
We contribute and collaborate with WeTech on several programs around the world, including technology-related competitions, scholarships, leadership and technical-skills trainings, and mentorships. Through the Qualcomm Global Scholars Program, we engage with young professional women by providing scholarships and mentorships in China, India, Korea and Taiwan. Additionally, our employees volunteer to support teams of high school girls in India and the U.S. by serving as mentors in the Technovation program. Technovation Is the largest global technology and entrepreneurship competition for girls which challenges them to build mobile apps that will address a community problem.
