Two Semiconductor Science Academy teachers stand in front of a sign with Samsung's vision written on it. It says "Enabling tomorrow."

Established in 2013, Samsung Semiconductor Science Academy teaches students the basic principles of science through chips,
as well as hands-on experience. The program saw
6,100 middle schoolers from 50 local schools in attendance in 2019, along with 2,800 Samsung employees as honorary teachers. Due to COVID-19, the program only ran for the second half of 2020 and taught
3,531 students from 32 middle schools.

We help students
explore the world
of chips

by explaining
the technology
behind them.

Even as teachers,
we find ourselves
learning from students.

“It’s been so long since I’ve been in a
middle school classroom.
It was nerve-wracking just standing
in front of everyone.
But creating these lessons made me
feel like
I was learning the basics
all over again.”

Samsung Employee Column

By becoming teachers, we can give back to our community.
We do our best to prepare for lessons, learning how to make
explanations easy to understand and also fun. Leaving the office
and stepping into the classroom makes us nervous, yet excited
to help others.

Why are our employees ready to
give up their evenings and weekends, raise money for textbooks and
lead a classroom?
It’s because we hope that together, each one of us can help form
a better world. Chips are changing lives and saving the planet,
even if they’re not in sight.
