Why Every Student Can Benefit from STEM Education – Bonus Episode with Labster

In this episode, science and STEM education expert, Maaroof Fakhri, joins to discuss how every student can benefit from STEM Education. You’ll also hear about Labster, a dynamic digital resource that brings state of the art science labs to students. And we’ll talk about how virtual science labs offer an engaging way for students to interact with STEM concepts, add value to a student experience, and help students develop skills for all parts of their life!

Today’s episode is titled “Why Every Student Can Benefit from STEM Education” and I’m excited to chat with Maaroof Fakhri from Labster. Labster was just named the 2022 Best Technology Learning Platform by the Edtech Breakthrough Awards; and Maaroof and the Labster team have spent the last few years re-developing virtual science lab content to complement and align with NGSS and AP curricula. Throughout the episode you’ll hear lots of reasons why STEM education is important for all students, and you’ll learn a bit about virtual labs, how they work, and what the student experience is like when they try out a virtual lab.
