Abstract

Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education plays a vital role in order to prepare students for the twenty-first century economy. Unfortunately, people with disabilities in countries throughout the world are vastly underrepresented in scientific and technological fields. Closing the gap in the STEM is vital for improving fairness and opportunities for the people with disabilities. The STEM industry is critical in a world where there are various environmental, health, and development issues. It is essential not only for increasing productivity and competitiveness, but also for ensuring individual and societal well-being. The STEM workforce is expected to rise exponentially in the future year in today's burgeoning knowledge-intensive economy. This chapter explores a current state-of-the-art literature review on the use of assistive robots in STEM education people with disabilities.
