Whether teaching in person or virtually, I’ve always told my middle schoolers that they have the potential to solve the world’s problems with their knowledge of STEM. These subjects provide a foundation for kids to learn critical problem-solving skills that can be used to find cures for diseases, develop smarter technology, streamline the supply chain, and take on challenges to improve our world.
Samsung knows teachers across the country are helping students discover the difference STEM learning can make in their lives. Whether teaching virtually or in-person, STEM has the power to build confidence our students need right now.
About Samsung Solve for Tomorrow
The Samsung Solve for Tomorrow contest invites public school teachers of students in grades 6-12 to solve problems in their communities through STEM.
In it’s 11th year, Solve for Tomorrow is a national competition. It inspires students to solve community issues they’re passionate about while sparking interest in STEM.
Solve for Tomorrow is built with teachers in mind. For the first time, the contest is completely virtual from start to finish!
