Participants develop lifelong skills, including teamwork, communication, research, critical and creative thinking, analysis, synthesis and evaluation. They learn to apply these skills to situations that are futuristic but oriented to real life. The competitive aspects of FPS are fun but the benefit of learning a process can be used for the rest of their lives is the real prize.
Future Problem Solving Program International involves over 250,000 students annually from 16 countries worldwide.
