Brandon School Division is excited to announce that two of our K-8 schools have been selected as regional finalists in our Province for the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Challenge! As our students work on real-world projects to help us better our schools and communities, this initiative is inspiring them and getting them closer than ever to STEM subjects. STEM is a term that refers to curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines: Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics.
During the months of March through April, Teachers from across the country entered the contest by answering questions related to showing how STEM can be applied to help improve their school and local community.
George Fitton School and Meadows School submitted entries during Phase 1 and are moving on to the next round, in hopes of winning up to $50,000 in Samsung Tech for their classrooms! Phase 2 of the challenge will have the 150 Regional Finalists produce and submit a video, based on their application, demonstrating how STEM can be applied to help improve their school and local community.
Our students were eager to take on this challenge, as they understand the global applications of solving problems within their schools and communities using STEM.
