Medical education is not something obtained easily or quickly. Traditional medical education requires a four-year undergraduate program, a four-year graduate program in medical school, and a residency that can take anywhere from three to seven years, not to mention the tests necessary to practice medicine in the state they live in. Everything from basic treatments to delicate surgeries requires practice.
While some of these procedures can be practiced on cadavers or dummies, the best education comes from hands-on experience. However, these experiences aren’t always available. How can we ensure the next generation of medical professionals has the training and education to care for future patients? What role will artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics play in the future of medical education?

Robotics is already used by schools all around the world. Machines such as RobotLAB’s Pepper Robot are the primary examples of what robotics ideally looks like in practice and how it can be applied in different activities.
Indeed, children find robots interesting and programming them entertaining. Robot kits like Lego Mindstorms have become popular precisely for those reasons. But why exactly should children be taught robotics? Here are the five innovative skills children can get with robotics.
RobotLAB VR Expeditions 2.0™ is inspired by the great work Google did, and following feedback from thousands of educators, RobotLAB created a VR tool tailored to educators’ needs.
Since Google Expeditions was discontinued on June 30, 2021, Google redirects everyone to use the Google Arts and Culture app and presents it as a replacement for Expeditions.
Google Arts and Culture app include many of the experiences that were available on Google Expeditions. However, we at RobotLAB tried and tested the app and there are major differences and issues we wanted you to be aware of.
Our teacher partners have shared with us their thoughts on Google's alternative, and they all mainly agree:
Hundreds of educators have contacted us in the past weeks, asking for resources to teach remote, while schools open online only, or hybrid only.
RobotLAB got you covered!
In this video, you will learn how to use Google Expeditions while being remote. It is easy, it is free, and it is full of places to go to, even if we can't physically do it.
Watch the video below and learn how to do it in three simple steps
