Future Problem Solvers… stepping into the world of #FPS day #1

OK……Future problem solvers…IS TOUGH!  This is quite a complicated competition. Today we went over just what FPS is and how to look for challenges in the ‘Future Scene’.    She gave us an example of the Old Lady Who Lived in a Shoe.  It was really fun to think of ways to solve the problems with different approaches such as technology, ethics, justice…some I felt were hard.

I’m not really sure how I would go about teaching this.  I am going to schedule a visit with one of the FPS leaders to see how she does it in her classroom.  I looked up information on FPS but essential I will have to buy a coaches manual.  HMMMM…. a lot to think about.  This will be quite a learning curve.
