FPSP is an excellent vehicle to teach problem solving strategies across the curriculum while promoting the development of student leadership skills. It provides an outstanding educational and learning experience that should be available to all students. It stimulates critical and creative thinking skills and encourages students to develop a vision for the future.
Spanning a variety of disciplines and content areas, FPSP consistently demonstrates its validity in education as an integral part of a school’s curriculum and as an academic co-curricular activity. FPSP provides opportunities to students in both content and skill areas.
FPSP, a multidisciplinary activity, is one of the most significant and widely respected programs for youngsters in existence. As Joe Renzulli, Director of the National Research Center on the Gifted and Talented, USA, says, “It helps to bring out the energy of young people in a way that you would love to see happen in every classroom and situation. It is a program that gives them remarkable opportunities to put their learning to work in very meaningful and very enjoyable ways.”
Today, the Future Problem Solving Program involves over 250,000 students annually from Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Russia, United States of America and Singapore.
