Community Problem Solving (Team or Individual)
$60.00 per team or $50 per individual
In Community Problem Solving (CmPS), teams in grades 4-12 use the FPS process to identify and solve current problems in their own communities. This experience builds hands-on problem solving skills, strengthens analytical skills and leadership ability, and offers many different types of communication opportunities—all while actively involving students in giving back to the community in which they live. Teams spend the year working on the problem they chose, and compete for invitation to the State Bowl and the International competition. Because teams may include 15 or more students, this is an excellent experience for whole classrooms. Individuals are also welcome in Community Problems Solving and will be evaluated separately.
