Future Problem Solving is typically offered as an extracurricular activity or elective course, and it is open to students of all ages and grade levels.
The program is structured around a series of competitions that challenge students to apply their creativity and problem-solving skills to real-world issues and scenarios.
Global Issues Problem Solving students are presented with a complex scenario or problem. They are asked to identify the underlying issues, generate solutions, evaluate the pros and cons of each solution, and select the best course of action.
Students work in teams (or individually) to develop their solutions and are judged on the creativity, originality, and feasibility of their ideas.
In addition to honing their problem-solving skills, Future Problem Solving emphasizes leadership development. FPS equips students with the skills necessary to lead teams and organizations towards solutions for the problems they will face in the future.
