Samsung’s Solve for Tomorrow brings students from around the world to make the planet a better place for everyone, by encouraging them to use STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) subjects to solve the most pressing problems the world.
Launched in the US in 2010, Samsung Solve for Tomorrow has become one of Samsung’s flagship educational programmes, and has sparked creativity in 1.8 million students from across 23 countries during the past 11 years.
Students participating in the programme are afforded the chance to get involved in a range of educational experiences as they work to crystalize their ideas. Initiatives such as Design Thinking training (which is offered to participating teachers and students) and mentorships with Samsung employees are designed to nurture creative problem-solving, cooperation, and communication skills among students.
The students’ innovative solutions often earn recognition on the global stage. For example, students from Dougherty Valley High School in California garnered attention from the Global Climate Action Summit after they designed a device that detects early-stage wildfires.
Solve for Tomorrow is set to expand further this year to reach students in more than 30 countries. The programme, once known by different names depending on region, is now globally standardized under a single brand name and has undergone changes to provide a more refined curriculum to every student.
As more countries join up, Samsung Solve for Tomorrow in Europe and Latin America have been receiving applications since March while programmes in other regions are preparing to launch according to local academic calendars.

Under Samsung’s guiding CSR vision of ‘Together for Tomorrow! Enabling People,’ Solve for Tomorrow and many other youth education programs are operating in a broad range of regions. Going forward, Samsung will continue to provide quality education for future generations to help them unleash their full potential and find innovative solutions to benefit the world.
