Okay, dear readers: I have a fantastic giveaway for you! Samsung is offering one lucky This Mom Loves reader a Samsung Tab S tablet (worth $399.99) as part of their mission to spread the word about the Samsung Canada National Education Challenge!
Whether you're a teacher or a parent, I'm sure you're well aware of the importance of STEM (more on that below), and Samsung's new challenge gives students in Grades 6-12 the opportunity to identify a challenge and use STEM to help solve it...with the chance to win some amazing grant money for their schools! This is definitely a project worth sharing.
Here are some more details about the Challenge:
Taking a passion for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) outside of the classroom and into the community was never this much fun for students! Samsung Electronics Canada today announced the launch of the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Challenge, a national educational contest designed to inspire Canadian students to get closer to the real-world possibilities of STEM by applying them to help better their communities. Students in Grades 6 to 12 will be asked to identify an existing challenge or issue they are passionate about in their town, city or neighbourhood, and use STEM to help solve it.
Finalist schools will share in $500,000 in Samsung classroom technology grants. Solve for Tomorrow Challenge partners include Canadian YouTube stars Mitch Moffit and Greg Brown of AsapSCIENCE. With a passion for science and education, Mitch and Greg started AsapSCIENCE as a community for people to learn and be entertained through a unique online educational content that highlights the neatest aspects of science. Mitch and Greg will visit two grand prize winning schools and their communities to learn about their winning student projects and feature them in an AsapTHOUGHT video. They’ll also host a special and unique STEM lab experience at the winning schools.
“Samsung is committed to supporting schools when it comes to classroom technology, support and research, and we know STEM is critical for 21st century learning skills and the careers of tomorrow,” said Mark Childs, CMO at Samsung Electronics Canada. “In collaboration with our partners in education, through the Solve for Tomorrow Challenge we’re introducing a totally new and engaging challenge where Canadian students will be able to learn about STEM topics, work together as a team, have fun, and help their communities, all while working to win some very cool experiences and technology products for their school.”
Along with AsapSCIENCE, the Solve for Tomorrow Challenge is supported by The Learning Partnership, a national non-profit organization dedicated to advancing public education in Canada, and Let’s Talk Science, a charitable organization which looks to create and deliver unique learning programs and services that engage youth and educators in STEM subjects.
