Robots have been a point of fascination and study for centuries as researchers and inventors have sought to explore the potential for automated technology. While there’s a long history of the development and creation of autonomous machines, mobile, quadrupedal robots — or four-legged robotic dogs — have seen a significant boom in the last few decades.
Education is heavily reliant on the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. Schools have been forced to adapt or face the consequences.

As students move into science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) higher education, it’s important to understand their learning experiences need to be more diverse. STEM internships are a good tool in this regard. When students can make connections with industries, mentors, and practices this can boost the outcomes of their education in a variety of areas. As their course tutor, you have a role to play in facilitating and supporting these internships while they’re still at school.
We’re going to review why STEM internships can be a powerful tool, along with some of the ways you can help set your students on a positive path.

There’s no denying that our world is becoming more data-driven, and trying to teach young students the importance of understanding critical information is more important than ever before.
Aside from building critical thinking skills, students can benefit from STEM topics (science, technology, math, and engineering), which rely heavily on data and analytics. Setting kids up for success early on in their academic careers is vital.
K-12 educators have their work cut out for them trying to teach their students about data visualization. Here’s why it’s important to teach young students and some tips for teachers who need to cover this in their classrooms.
