Future Problem Solving
New Contest for 2019-2020
Future Problem Solving Program International (FPSPI) was founded in 1974 by Dr. Paul Torrance. Each competition has four possible events which take students through a 6-step problem solving process which teaches critical and creative thinking, and decision-making skills. Each year, the FPSPI creates a list of four topics with suggested readings, and creates a future problem scenario for each of the four topics. In three of the events, students use their research skills combined with their writing or performance skills on the topics to solve a problem set forth on the scenarios, or in the fourth, they find a problem in their own communities to apply the problem solving process to and work to solve this real life problem themselves. Competitions are organized at the local, state, and international levels.
