Samsung empowers teachers, students
Samsung is challenging teachers to submit ideas for how their students can use Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) to solve problems in their communities.
The ninth annual Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Contest challenges sixth through 12th grade teachers, through a collaboration with www.DonorsChoose.org, the nation's largest fundraising site for public school teachers. The first 3,500 teachers that apply by Oct. 30 will receive funding.
Last year Tom Erickson's students at Clear Creek Middle School were finalists in the Solve for Tomorrow competition, winning $50,000 in technology equipment for the school. The Clear Creek students created a high tech escape hatch designed to help people get out of their homes in a flood.
Since its inception in 2009, the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Contest has provided more than $23 million in technology to more than 1,700 public schools in the United States.
