At Samsung, we’ve had a long-standing commitment to inspire STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education. That’s why we’re encouraging discovery of these STEM fields to today’s youth through the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow education contest. Classrooms across the country will be challenged to identify issues in their communities and use STEM knowledge to provide solutions. Winning schools will be awarded a share of more than $2 million in technology, with an opportunity to bring their ideas to life.
Through Solve for Tomorrow, new doors of career exploration will be opened to the next generation of innovators. After all, there are nearly 20 million STEM jobs in the U.S. It will be the students interested in STEM who will fill these positions and improve the world around us.
In 2014, the National Samsung Solve for Tomorrow contest winner, the Academy at Palumbo in Philadelphia, created an algorithmic mapping system to help students choose the safest route when walking home at night. Because of their great success, they were asked to partner with the University of Pennsylvania graduate students to develop their idea in-depth.
2015 Solve for Tomorrow winners developed solutions such as decreasing water usage in their community, and making adaptive equipment for students with motor skill restrictions. You can check out more information on the inspiring 2015 finalists and winners here.
