Samsung Electronics America has recently announced the name of 300 State Finalists for the 13th annual Samsung Solve for Tomorrow national competition. This competition is organized to challenge public school students studying in grades 6th to 12th to explore the role of core STEM subjects- Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths, who can play a role in addressing some bigger issues in their local communities. It is designed to engage students in active, hands-on learning, which will be proven helpful for real-world problems too.
Let us tell you that those 300 State Finalists, selected among the above 1000 entrants of this competition, won a package of 2,500$ for technology and school supplies. The State Winners will be announced in February 2023 and will get prize packages of 12,000$. Out of these 300 State Finalists, three schools will be named National Winners, chosen through the additional stages of the competition, will be announced in May, and receive prize packages of 100,000$. Besides, there will also be prize packages of 50,000$ for the National Finalist. The full list of State Finalists is available here.
The Chief Marketing, Citizenship & Communications Officer at Samsung Electronics America, Michelle Crossan-Matos, has stated: “As a company and as individuals, STEM is incredibly important to Samsung – we depend on STEM-savvy people to envision, implement, and engage with innovative STEM-dependent products and services.” He predicted that STEM jobs would grow by 8% between 2019 to 2029. We know that STEM skills are the keys to the 21st-century workforce, but the scores of STEM subjects like Maths have fallen by the biggest margin in the last 30+ years.
By looking at the above-mentioned issue, he added, “Solve for Tomorrow was designed to provide schools and teachers with an innovative, problem-based learning approach to STEM education to boost student interest, proficiency, and diversity in STEM. This fresh crop of impressive State Finalists is proof that we’re succeeding.” Because of the South Korean giant’s multidirectional thinking from technology to the environment and future, Samsung is the leading manufacturer in the world in every possible way.
