In today's digitally interconnected world, social media has revolutionized the way people communicate, collaborate, and consume information. It has permeated various aspects of our lives, including education, where it presents unique opportunities for teachers to engage students in new and exciting ways. One particular field that can greatly benefit from this integration is STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education.
Let’s take a closer look at how teachers can effectively incorporate social media into a STEM curriculum.

The pandemic forced many students to switch to online courses. While virtual learning was a useful stopgap measure in the absence of in-person classes, certain topics proved very difficult to teach remotely, especially hands-on STEM subjects. For physical science, technology and engineering courses, in-person classes work best, but there’s still a place for online learning.
At RobotLAB, we believe that every student deserves access to the latest technologies and learning tools to prepare them for the future.
As part of our commitment to supporting STEM education, we've compiled a list of existing and new grants that schools can apply for to invest in robotics technology and support their educational programs.
We understand that finding the right funding can be a challenge for schools, which is why we've done the research and put together a comprehensive list of STEM opportunities and resources to help you navigate the offerings available.

The marriage between health science and technology has been a long and happy one. However, that union has perhaps never been more important than it is today. Now, more than ever, state-of-the-art technologies, from bioengineering to artificial intelligence (AI), are playing a leading role in optimizing patient care, supporting healthcare providers, and expanding the scope of medical knowledge.
Among the most significant and promising of these technologies in the domain of health, sciences are robotics.
These technologies are not only increasingly being used in clinics, hospitals, and operating rooms, but also in health sciences classrooms at every level, including primary, secondary, and post-secondary education. This article explores the reasons why you should begin integrating robotics into your health sciences courses and identifies key strategies for doing so.

All children deserve the right to be set up for success, and one of the ways children are prepared to do their best in school is based on their access to technology. Technology is a great equalizer for all children, and all children can become better learners through the use of technology — especially children with disabilities. Despite this benefit of technology in the classroom, however, not all technology is accessible to all children. How can parents and educators ensure all students, no matter their ability, receive the best education they can?

Solid STEM education is perhaps one of the best gifts parents and teachers can give students, equipping them today with the tools they will need to fill some of the most lucrative and in-demand jobs of tomorrow. But although STEM learning has so much to offer, many children, teens, and college students often avoid science and technology curricula due to the inherent rigor of such programs.

Robots are exciting to play tools for children and young adults. What if students learned how to make robots? Would robotics make it easy to handle STEM? Would the robots make other concepts easier to understand?

While virtual reality (VR) is still a developing technology, many industries worldwide are looking into the potential benefits of using it in their operations. From manufacturing to retail, VR can be a transformative piece of tech that intertwines digital and physical realities.
Another sector investigating the advantages of VR is education. For most people, the concept of VR is complex and futuristic. However, it’s rapidly evolving, and it will likely be commonplace in daily life. Statista reports that the VR market size will increase to more than $12 billion by 2024.
Below is more information about VR, the benefits of using VR in a technical classroom, and details regarding VR Expeditions 2.0.
We are excited to share with you a set of new features for VR Expeditions 2.0! and we can't wait for you to try them! Here are the most important ones that will make your and your students' VR experience much better!
