STEM education is experiencing something of a golden age. Enrollment in STEM programs has increased by 26% since 2000, and educators have more resources at their disposal than ever. As students engage in more complex, high-tech projects, it becomes increasingly crucial that they back up their files.
Gone are the days of paper documents. Most school work today takes place electronically. Although convenient, this comes with some risks. Factors like dropped internet connections, corrupted hard drives, and malware can all compromise students’ files. If they don’t want their hard work to vanish unexpectedly, they need to back it up.
Thankfully, there’s an abundance of backup strategies students can use. Here are five of the best options.

Robotics is one of the newest subjects in today’s schools, and many who grew up without it might question why it is useful to teach to children these skills. After all, building robots may seem like quite a small niche – though actually, the robotic world is growing at an incredible rate, and learning about it will massively benefit today’s children as they come to enter the workforce. Building a robot requires students to utilize totally different skills to those which might be used in a normal classroom setting.

People have long been fascinated by how robots work. And as technology is improving, it also offers new development opportunities for the robotics industry. There are already robots that are considered the future of logistics, while others are used to welcome and greet patients at many hospitals.
But according to the best paper writing service, robots could make their entry in the educational domain too.

There have been many consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic already. The concept of social distancing was nonexistent before the pandemic, but it's something that we all have to live and work by now. Everybody is now subjected to the use of a nose mask while also trying to keep a distance of 6 feet from the persons around them. It’s a lot to live by, yet the world has not changed.
Industries and companies have responded to the gap which Covid creates in different ways. People that can afford to work remotely are working remotely, but then goods delivery has to continue, someone needs to clean the workplaces, and people need to receive medical attention. All of these require close interaction that the world can’t afford now, thanks to the virus. That’s why the world is now turning to robots to fill the void.

VR has a significant impact on educational processes: only through this technology can students safely and in detail, see what they are learning, from the decay of atoms to extinct organisms. According to analysts at ABI Research, by 2022, the global market for VR-learning will grow to a total of $6.3 billion. As early as the end of 2018, virtual technology has been implemented in 18% of U.S. curricula. Let's take a look at how VR is used to enhance educational processes.
Today, I want to share with you one of the best robots on the market, the UVD robot that is using UVC light in order to disinfect the spaces. Check the video below!
Artificial intelligence plays an integral role in education. As schools become more technologically equipped, artificial intelligence helps keep young people engaged. It is reimagining the way we do things and is allowing us to reach our full potential.
The main reason why artificial intelligence has been introduced in education is that it helps personalize and strengthen the learning experience. It provides each learner with additional information when they have difficulty with a topic.
If you are new to artificial intelligence and want to know about its role in education, you will find this post to be insightful. It discusses its 5 main roles to help you get a better idea about its capabilities.
Let’s dive in.

Hands-on STEM experiences aren't impossible when learning goes virtual--it just takes a little creativity to help engage students
Seemingly innocuous statements can exacerbate math anxiety among learners—and avoiding these phrases can help all students see themselves as “math people."
