To raise enthusiasm for STEM studies and to address the technology gap in classrooms, Samsung is asking 6th-12th grade teachers and their students to produce creative videos that explore the question: “How can science or math help improve the environment in your community?” Teachers can submit a short application for a chance to participate in the video contest.  Fifty selected classrooms will receive a Samsung camcorder and laptop, along with Adobe Premiere Elements and Photoshop Elements software to create videos responding to the question.
