2023 ‘Solutions for Tomorrow’ Competition Workshop for Central Region Students

On September 24, Samsung Vietnam and DTU jointly organized the 2023 ‘Solutions for Tomorrow’ competition workshop for Central Region for secondary and high school students aged from 12 to 18, in preparation for the upcoming event.
A group discussion with high school students 
Samsung first offered the ‘Solutions for Tomorrow’ competition in 33 countries worldwide in 2010, with 2 million participants, aspiring to their motto ‘Together for Tomorrow! Enabling the People.’ Under the supervision of their teachers, the students are encouraged to actively explore and use the STEM system toolkit in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, to solve local social problems.

In 2019, the annual competition was first held in Vietnam. However, this year is the first time that the contest has conducted activities offline in Danang, with five secondary and high schools participating:
- Nguyen Khuyen Secondary and High School 
- Le Do High School
- FPT Primary and Secondary School 
- Le Quy Don High School for the Gifted 
- Hoa Vang High School
The students learned about the contest objectives, the prerequisite soft skills and technological knowledge, in order to start turning their ideas and solutions into actual products. At the same time, they were able to share their experiences with instructors and competing teams from different provinces around the country.
Dr. Le Van Chung, Director of the DTU Center for Visualization & Simulation (CVS), was invited to mentor the Danang teams and said:  “For many years, DTU has supported high schools in Central Vietnam and the Central Highlands to effectively implement and apply STEM education methods and I personally recommend that you investigate implementing STEM at your school. Meanwhile, I will monitor the contestants closely, answer their questions and advise them on any additional soft skills they’ll need to perform well in the Product Development round and the Finals of the contest.
“DTU has always held regular events to connect with secondary school students, such as the Summer Research Schools project, assist in science and technology competitions, and implement STEM training. The objective is to motivate and inspire the students by offering an introduction to career orientation and research methods while still in school.”
