Six Steps To Success
The New York Future Problem Solving Program (NYFPS) is not just about student competitions, trophies, medals, and colorful t-shirts. It is the first step towards unlocking students' potential by teaching them essential skills through application of concepts. Students are given the tools to help achieve their goals and strive for a better future. Participation in NYFPS' programs provides students the opportunity to engage in Future Problem Solving (FPS) at the local, New York State, and International levels.
Earn Trophies And Medals
Students can put what they learned in the classroom to the test in NYFPS' student competitions. The competitions draw out the full potential of every student. Competitors broaden their knowledge base, learn the value of teamwork, build relationships with like-minded peers, and develop new skillsets for success beyond the classroom. It is motivating to have the opportunity to showcase accomplishments, travel to events, receive recognition, and earn trophies for learning classroom concepts.
With a range of components, NYFPS has a competitive event for every student. Choose a competitive component that matches your interest and goals.
Prepare For The Future
Students learn a structured approach to problem solving and enhance their skills by putting it into action through case study analysis or project-based activities that require creative solutions.
Step Up To Be A Leader
Provide leadership through successfully executing projects, building consensus, and setting appropriate performance metrics. Hone communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and problem solving skills.
Drive The Conversation
Students, educators, parents, and NYFPS alumni spark community engagement with service projects or future problem solving topic discussions beyond the classroom. Participants not only interact within their local communities, but join in the broader New York State and International future problem solving network. This collaboration unlocks interactive learning and exchange of ideas with the goal of building a better future together.
