Wisconsin Future Problem Solving

FPS alumni:
Please consider evaluating with WI FPS. Evaluations are held four Saturdays per year and FPSPI engages students in creative problem solving.

This is the Facebook home of the Wisconsin Future Problem Solving Program, an affiliate of Future Problem Solving Program International (FPSPI). Founded by creativity pioneer, Dr. E. Paul Torrance, FPSPI stimulates critical and creative thinking skills and encourages students to develop a vision for the future. FPSPI features curricular and co-curricular competitive, as well as non-competitive, activities in creative problem solving.

Operating as usual


EDUCATORS! Learn how to develop essential problem solving skills with your students. Future Problem Solving has been active in Wisconsin since 1981, impacting thousands of students.

Integrate into classroom curriculum, use for enrichment groups, implement in co-curricular programs, use with English Language Learners – whatever works best for you.
