15 Schools are Named National Finalists in the $2 Million Solve for Tomorrow Contest

More than 4,100 school groups submitted ideas for how they might be able to use STEM to address an issue affecting their communities. From a pool of state winners (representing all 50 states and Washington, D.C.) that were selected to develop their project and submit a short video of how it works, the 15 finalists were selected. This year’s projects include a smartwatch app for pedestrian safety, enhanced window screens for reducing pollution and tiny homes for homeless teens.

All of the national finalist teams are invited to come to New York City to present their projects in front of a live panel of judges and Samsung employees and partners.

This year’s 15 finalists are:
