Samsung’s Solve for Tomorrow (SFT) program is a national competition challenging public school students in grades 6-12 to explore the role of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) in solving significant issues in their local communities, with the opportunity to win a share of $2 million in Samsung technology and classroom supplies. Samsung partners with crowdfunding nonprofit DonorsChoose to ensure that diverse students across the U.S. have the tools and experiences they need to power their STEM education.
Beyond the competition, SFT sheds light on local issues and possible solutions, which creates a positive ripple effect for communities. The visibility created by Samsung and DonorsChoose for teachers, students, and schools not only leads to community and government recognition but also initiates increased funding for more comprehensive STEM curricula. What’s more, SFT students have gone on to study STEM in college, pursue STEM careers, and take active civic leadership roles in their communities.
