3 Ways STEM Learning Speaks to The Future of Work

Future-STEM-job

To succeed in college and the workplace, students require a solid foundation in STEM learning. Experience in these subjects does not only benefit aspiring scientists and engineers–it’s essential for all students.

In fact, between 2017 and 2027, the number of STEM jobs will grow 13 percent. Even positions in traditionally non-STEM fields (estimated to grow by 9 percent) will require some sort of technological knowledge.

Introducing Students to Careers in Robotic Engineering

Humanoid-Robots-NAO

According to a study from the McKinsey Global Institute, robots may replace human workers in as many as 800 million jobs by 2030. Over the next 12 years, there will be a higher demand than ever before for robotic engineers. After all, someone needs to design these robots and be able to fix them if they break down. Learning robotics can help students succeed in the future by preparing them to enter an expanding field that will require an increasingly difficult skill set.

It’s important to teach students about robotic engineering in the classroom, not just outside of it. Many students may not know about the opportunities that could be available to them, or how to get involved with robotic engineering.

Perhaps the most exciting way to get students involved with robotics is to have a lab or hands-on lesson. Start small, and build progressively complex lessons from there.

3 Ways To Integrate Technology Into The Classroom

Image result for tECHNOLOGY IN THE CLASSROOM

Today’s primary and secondary students are extremely tech savvy, which is why implementing technology in the classroom has become a major focus (and in some cases a major obstacle) for educators. The students in your classroom constantly use technology to communicate with each other and learn about the world around them. Integrating technology into the classroom creates learning opportunities that are more engaging, and sometimes more effective, than traditional teaching methods and principles.

Closing The Gap Between Men and Women in STEM

Women in STEM

Gender inequality in the workplace is nothing new. When women entered the workforce during World War II, it was out of necessity. During the feminist movement of the 1960s, women entered the workforce by choice. However, their options were quite limited. Most simply became secretaries, nurses, babysitters, or teachers.

Today, women work in all fields, but, the hard sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics are still dominated by men.

Is there is a reason that such a gap continues to exist in these particular fields? And what can be done to close this gap?

Is the implementation of 3D printing in education a necessity?

Recently, 3D printing in education has become more widely known. Despite 3D printing being relatively new on the mainstream market, more and more 3D printers and applications of 3D technology are being found. The leading 3D printing manufacturers have already developed specialised machines for children and printers to cover educational needs.

3D printing in education

Nowadays the importance of the inclusion of 3D printing in professional degrees and in schools is already a fact. Since training is essential for the application and implementation of professional 3D technology, especially for the industry it is a professional necessity. However, when it comes to the use of 3D printing in education, questions arise: Is 3D printing really established in education? How to get the application of 3D technologies in schools and why should it play an important role for our children?
