In partnership with well-known Canadian YouTubers AsapSCIENCE and educational organizations Let’s Talk Science and The Learning Partnership, Samsung’s Solve for Tomorrow Challenge encourages Canadian students in grades 6 through 12 to apply themselves to think big using science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to solve everyday problems in their local communities.

photoThese semi-finalist schools will now go on to build their proposed STEM solution, competing to be one of 11 prize winning finalists to move to the final stage.

Eleven prize-winning finalists will be announced on or about Tuesday, March 22, 2016, with the chance to win one of two grand prizes of $50,000 in Samsung classroom technology grants and a visit from AsapSCIENCE.

“We’ve been impressed by both the variety and creativity of schools’ STEM-based solutions to solve their local community issues,” said Mark Childs, Chief Brand Officer, Samsung Electronics Canada.

“From an anti-bullying app seeing students home safely, to an anti-freezing plumbing solution for Canadian winters, these are tangible, real world innovations that are wholly inspired by STEM. We can’t wait to see how students bring these projects to life to benefit their communities across Canada.”
