China's rapid economic growth has been accompanied by notable development in its education system. However, amidst this progress, a significant challenge persists: the gap in equitable access to quality education between rural and urban areas.

Many rural schools are highly remote and face numerous challenges – such as limited access to quality infrastructure, a shortage of qualified teachers, and inadequate educational resources, especially smart and technology facilities. These challenges create disparities between rural and urban areas, perpetuating educational inequality and limiting the potential for social and economic development in rural communities.

In China, higher education is expanding at a rate unprecedented anywhere in the world. The market for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) programs in China has grown rapidly in the past three years to RMB3.9 billion. However, rocketing tuition and fees now exceed a rural family's annual income many times.
