FPS teams complete two practice problems and one qualifying problem throughout the school year at their local campus.
Trained evaluators score the students’ work and return it with feedback including suggestions for improvement.
After researching the topic and analyzing the future scene, students employ the six-step FPS model and complete a written booklet, which is later submitted for competitive scoring.
Under the guidance of teacher/coaches, teams of four students in grades 4-12 use the FPSP six-step model to explore challenges and propose action plans to complex societal problems while using creativity and Language Arts learning objectives.
The top scoring teams on the qualifying problem are invited to the Texas Affiliate FPS Bowl held each April in Austin.
The winners of the FPS Bowl advance to the FPSP International Conference in June.
We identify the problems in the future and see if we can solve them.
Well, future problem solving as a class - we’re presented a future scene with some issue that we might face in the future.
