Most of us know the benefits of robotics and science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM programs. And those benefits are profound, providing the necessary foundation for students pursuing degrees and careers in what’s now known as the “robot economy.”

“STEM education centers around programs designed to help students gain skills required to succeed in the innovation-focused 21st-century job market,” according to the Center for Strategic International Study. “Typically, this includes critical thinking, problem-solving, teamwork, adaptability and digital literacy — all important for future careers.”
