Competition Workshop Skill Building


FPSPI is a dynamic international program involving thousands of students annually from around the world. Developed in 1974 by creativity pioneer Dr. E. Paul Torrance, Future Problem Solving (FPS) provides competitive and non-competitive components for today’s curriculum via a six-step model which teaches critical and creative thinking, problem solving, and decision making.

Future Problem Solving (FPS) teaches students how to think, not what to think. The diverse components offered by Future Problem Solving address the need for problem solving within the curriculum in order for students to prepare effectively for the future in front of them. FPS can also be integrated into all curriculum areas, especially language arts, science, and social studies. Participation in the program strongly supports the development of 21st Century Skills.
