The Solve for Tomorrow program is based on a contest that encourages high school students from public schools to develop original and innovative projects applying the STEM approach. Accompanied by a mentoring teacher, students are encouraged to find creative solutions to local challenges, improving soft skills such as critical thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration. Throughout the stages of the program, the groups receive support from local mentors and different training resources to qualify their proposals.

Each Samsung subsidiary (the office that represents the company in a country or region) organizes the program in a way that best suits the reality of its country or region of representation. The organization and implementation of the program may vary in scale, with in some cases being implemented in a single country and others in a set of countries:

There are many ways to build an innovative project to respond to local challenges. Solve for Tomorrow organizes a suggested journey to be followed by students, based on Design Thinking and Project Based Learning.

As a general rule, the project should be built by a team of 2 to 5 students and a mentoring teacher. To support gender inclusion and parity in the sciences, the group is encouraged to have at least one female student.

In general, the main stages are registration and pre-selection, semi-final, and final. These steps may vary according to the dynamics in each country and/or region of program implementation. When advancing in the stages, the teams receive training and mentoring aimed at improving the project presented and can receive awards offered by Samsung.
