Solve for tomorrow contest- students working on project

Help your students become the innovators of tomorrow! The Samsung Solve for Tomorrow contest invites public school students in grades 6-12 to come up with solutions to challenges facing their communities using STEM. Encourage your students to build STEM, innovation, and life skills through this hands-on project. You could win a share of $2 million in prizes!

Together with your students, brainstorm problems your community faces and how you might solve them. You just need one innovative idea to participate! The application is simpler than ever, with just three questions to answer. You will define your problem and explain your proposed solution and how it will be sustainable. Then, your application is ready for submission (It only takes a few minutes!). As teams are selected to move through each phase, they are asked to provide more project details and are awarded prizes of increasing value.

Apply by October 27!
