Samsung’s global curriculum

The program consists of 3 stages, which are pre-evaluation, semi-final and final. The "Design- Thinking Workshop", is provided for the students and the volunteer teachers that participate in the program. Design Thinking consists of a 5-stage process that leads to creative and applicable ideas: empathizing, defining, generating ideas, prototyping and testing. This training is based on Stanford University’s “Design Thinking in Integrated Design Education” program. Samsung and Habitat Association will also provide mentorship for participating students that make it to the semi-finals.

Resolve the most urgent social problems

Solve for Tomorrow was launched globally by Samsung in 2010, laying the groundwork for the development of social innovation ideas to resolve the most urgent social problems. The program is aimed to increase interest and competence in STEM education and encourage young people to get into action to find creative solutions for social problems. The participants develop an in-depth understanding of their environment and also improve their critical and creative thinking, communication and collaboration skills. Students can apply for the competition with projects that offer solutions to various issues such as ‘Climate Crisis’ (Reduction of Carbon Emissions), ‘Sustainable Waste Management’ (Recycling), ‘Renewable Energy’ and ‘Smart City Applications’.

Teachers can apply for Solve for Tomorrow for volunteer mentoring. A Design Thinking Trainers training will also be available for teachers. Teachers applying from the cities in Anatolia will also be able to participate in the online trainings and physical trainings to be held in Istanbul, Izmir and Ankara.
