What is FPS?

Future Problem Solving Program International (FPSPI), was founded in 1974 by creativity pioneer, Dr. E. Paul Torrance. Future Problem Solving stimulates critical and creative thinking skills and encourages students to develop a vision for the future. The FPS Program features competitive as well as non-competitive activities in creative problem solving. Future Problem Solving Program International involves over 250,000 students annually from over 40 affiliates in the United States and 12 other countries.

Participants develop skills of 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 benefits of learning a process that can be used for the rest of their lives. This is the reason that teachers, parents and students fall in love with the program and continue to stay involved with it for many years.
