From STEM Toys to Pollution-Detecting Sweaters

 - Oct 27, 2018
These October 2018 educational trends cover everything from children's toys that are meant to provide learning opportunities, to university-led initiatives that were created to make a difference. Also included are educational resources for millennial consumers who are looking to better manage their finances, and others that guide those who are new to cyptocurrencies through different processes. Overall, these trends highlight innovation in the educational sphere, whether that means raising awareness by informing consumers of specific issues, or actually teaching them new skills.

One example that's featured is the RangerBot, which was developed by a team of scientists from the University of Queensland in Australia to monitor coral reefs. The RangerBot works by using an innovative vision system that allows it to safely navigate the ocean using a number of smart sensors. In addition to helping the RangerBot navigate its surroundings, these senors can pick up pollution, bleach, and pest levels that affect the environment.
