FPS INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
The Future Problem Solving International Conference features four days of fun, friendship, competition, exploration, and celebration. Teams from around the world meet to compete and solve problems. The 2023 competition will be held at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst.
Annually the top teams and individuals in FPSPI affiliate and mentored programs are invited to the Future Problem Solving International Conference. Hosted on the campus of a prominent university, over 2,000 gather to vie for the title of international champion in team and individual Global Issues Problem Solving, Scenario Writing, and team and individual Community Problem Solving. Students leave the international conference with friends and memories that last a lifetime.
"Of all of the many options for teaching students research and problem solving skills, Future Problem Solving is my favorite! FPS enables students to use their academic and creative talents and problem solving skills to make a difference in the world. This is a goal that all children should pursue."
Sally M. Reis, Department Head & Professor Educational Psychology Dept., NEAG School of Education UCONN
"I feel like FPS made it okay to be smart again. The FPS process can be applied to so many of life's sticky situations. In general, FPS made me the person I am today and I will continue to participate in whatever way possible. Through international conference, I've made friends in New Zealand with whom I still keep in contact."
