Future Problem Solvers
4th - 12th Grade
Dear Connection Families:
Sara Hepner is extending the opportunity to participate in Future Problem Solving to the parents and students of Connections. Through study of current trends, and futuristic scenarios, Future Problem Solving stimulates critical and creative thinking skills for students of all ages. There are several components to the program. The most familiar, "Future Problem Solving" is an academic competition during which students create an action plan to solve a problem in a futuristic story. Students prepare by researching current information on the topic, and practicing the six steps necessary to complete the problem. This year's topics are:
- Fundraising and Charity Giving.
- Protection of National Treasures.
- Cultural Prejudice.
- Caring for Our Elders.
