Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Challenges Children to Change the WorldShare open/close
One ordinary day in 2018 in the U.S., a Holly Grove Middle School student was almost hit by a car whilst getting on the school bus. The student’s classmates were all affected by this dangerous moment that could have easily led to a tragic accident, leading them to come away from the incident wishing that something as simple as the way to school could be safer for themselves and their friends.
In order to help those children who are bravely challenging themselves to forge a better path in their local communities, the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow initiative has been lending its support. Samsung Solve for Tomorrow, launched in 2010, is a creativity contest designed to raise awareness of STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) topics that encourage students to address their community’s societal issues with innovative, STEM-based solutions. Since 2010, more than 1.69 million students and teachers from over 20 countries around the world have participated in Samsung Solve for Tomorrow, helping to turn ideas into actions through the power of creative solutions.
After that one fateful day in 2018, what innovative solutions to road safety were those middle school students able to devise after meeting with transportation safety experts and receiving programming training? Check out the video below to learn more about the story of the students at Holly Grove Middle School, who, along with Samsung Solve for Tomorrow, are making the world a little safer.
