Forward leap into the metaverse: integrating VR/AR and haptics in STEM education

Our work has been selected by the editors as the cover of the forthcoming issue of the Robotics journal. Cover Story (view full-size image): With the introduction of the metaverse, the virtual digital world is going to take a conceptual leap forward. As technology progresses, bringing us new immersive worlds, we must adapt how we educate students and equip teachers to face these new challenges. In this perspective, hands-on laboratory work and practical experience are currently under-
