Future Problem Solvers
The Future Problem Solvers (FPS) team from Harvey-Swanson Elementary School recently competed in the State Bowl at Michigan State University. FPS is an international academic competition for young adolescents. This is the first year for FPS in Brandon and both teams qualified for the State Bowl.
Students participating in FPS learn to identify problems, analyze situations, brainstorm solutions and come up with futuristic creative action plans. They learn to work as a team with other students who think differently from them. Time management is emphasized as well as honing writing skills. One of our teams won 2nd
place in two categories: booklet writing, and their action plan. Congratulations to all participants!
