Who said learning STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) had to be boring? With the emerging trend of getting kids involved in STEM at an early age, a number of startups have introduced robots that explore STEM concepts through play. Here are ten STEM robotics kits that your kid (toddler to teen) will absolutely enjoy.
As public universities lose state funding, and are increasingly forced to function more like any other business, universities have to shift priorities.
Don't let the summer go to waste while school’s out.
