Harvard's Ash Center Recognizes Stark's Science and Math on the Move (SAMM) as "Bright Idea"

Harvard Recognizes SAMM The creation of a commonly-shared and highly mobile inventory of high tech science equipment that could serve all of Stark County's 17 public school districts was first suggested by
Ambassador W.R. Timken, Jr. in the early 1990s.


The result was Science and Math on the Move (SAMM)[1], one of the most enduring community-based collaborations in the nation to raise science and math achievement. On Tuesday, SAMM was recognized by the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation[2] at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government as one of 111 Bright Ideas in Government for 2013.


Bright Ideas focuses on how governmental entities at all levels can best collaborate with their communities in delivering effective and efficient services. That has been the story with SAMM.


Launched in 1995 with the help of the Timken Foundation, SAMM has been supported by the National Science Foundation, the Stark County Educational Service Center, Stark Education Partnership, all districts and area colleges, the Canton Joint Engineering Council, Canton Crime Lab, and the Paul and Carol David, Deuble, Diebold, H.W. Hoover, Hoover, Martha Holden Jennings, Fred F. Silk, Stark Community, and Timken Foundations .  


During the 2011-12 academic year, there were 664 district requests for SAMM equipment. Equipment was used for a total of 21,773 days by 25,548 students.
