Today’s students will spend most of their lives in the 21st century.  As society changes more quickly now than ever before, we face the awesome burden of preparing today’s students for the uncertainties of the new millennium.  We cannot provide students with all the information they will need to survive in the future, but we can help them develop the thinking skills necessary to adapt to a changing world.  The Future Problem Solving Program embraces that challenge.


Wisconsin Future Problem Solving (FPS) is an affiliate of Future Problem Solving Program International (FPSPI). Through Global Issues Problem Solving and Community Problem Solving, students develop skills of teamwork, communication, research, critical and creative thinking, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation.  Using a creative problem solving process, they learn to apply these wonderful skills to situations that are futuristic, but oriented to real life (in Global Issues Problem Solving) or to real life itself (Community Problem Solving).

FPS Mission

To develop the ability of young people globally to design and achieve positive futures through problem solving using critical and creative thinking.
