Samsung Solve for Tomorrow: Next Gen – Resources coming soon!
This year, with all its challenges and changes, has also provided us with an opportunity to press the reset button and imagine new ways of doing things. With this in mind, Samsung Solve for Tomorrow: Next Gen is calling on our next generation of innovators and asking: how can we use tech to make the world a better, more sustainable place?
Once you’ve registered, you’ll get priority access to the resources via email when they launch. The super speedy ‘design thinking’ sprint session will give young people aged 13-15 insight into creative tech careers, stretch imaginations and inspire great ideas.
Plan your lesson in now, so you’re ready when the resources launch in mid-June.
Busy summer term? Need to inspire tired students?
Coming soon: ‘plug and play’ session with exciting videos presented by a range of Samsung employees and sustainability experts, where they set quick-fire tasks and keep students aged 13-15 engaged throughout. So there’s no resource-gathering or marking for you-simply enjoy! Students will work in teams of three to take an idea from concept to prototype, learning about creative STEM careers as they go.
When they go home, students can develop an idea more fully, explore things they’d like to change, and enter an idea into our national competition. Prizes include some amazing Samsung tech and a chance to present their ideas as VIP guests at a Samsung event. Every entrant will also receive digital certification! They can use this to badge up their CV and evidence their skills in college applications.
This resource is flexible; deliverable as a standalone lesson, or over several tutor periods.
After the fun teamwork of the lesson, students are inspired to enter the ‘design thinking’ sprint competition during the summer holidays.
Have you got a young person who is full of ideas and would love to be inspired and fired up by our ‘design thinking’ sprint process? How about a keen ‘greenie’ who is passionate about the environment? If so, this could be perfect! Young people aged 13-15 get to learn about the ‘design thinking’ sprint process which is used by tech companies to take creative ideas from concept to prototype. They’ll also learn about tech-for-good, creative STEM careers and enjoy a fast-paced race through the design process.
Resources coming soon – all resources are free and fun and open up to a summer competition. Participants can enter their ideas for tech that makes the world a better, more sustainable place.
In addition, every entrant receives a digital badge which can be added to their CV. This can help them with applications to further education, jobs and apprenticeships.
