This fall, Samsung is giving public schools nationwide the opportunity to discover the power of technology. Samsung and its partners are asking teachers to participate in the annual “Solve for Tomorrow” contest to promote Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education, a key academic challenge in our country.
Now through October 31st, applications from teachers in all disciplines representing grades 6-12 are being accepted. There is no limit to the number of teachers that can enter from each school. Prizes will be awarded at each stage of the competition including 255 State Finalists and the final Five National Winners.
The nationwide competition will award schools with a share of over $2 million in technology.
The goal behind the contest is to foster student interest in STEM subjects and illustrate the power of applying that knowledge to practical, real-world issues.
Participants must answer a few, simple questions about their school and STEM education atwww.samsung.com/solve. One school per state will win a technology kit to produce a video addressing the challenge, “Show how STEM can be applied to help improve your local community.”
In addition to the video kit, each state will have one winner that will receive at least a $20,000 technology package for their school. National Winners will receive $140,000 in technology and prizes, and a trip to Washington, D.C. for a celebratory event.
