22 Efficiency-Targeted Gadgets for Students

From Solar School Benches to Siren Blasting Backpacks

— March 24, 2014 — Social Good
Technology has become an integral part of our everyday lives and the latest examples of student-targeted tech show how tech companies are changing the lives of students.

Students are some of the busiest people around; they're always on the go, from class to home, and then back to class. Some of the tech you'll see in this collection is made to make their lives a little easier to manage. Also, most students are never without some sort of tech these days anyway, so it makes sense to integrate as many educational tools as possible into the stuff they already carry around. Some tech products appeal to students, while others are making it easier for them to be productive.
