How does Future Problem Solving connect to education standards?

Our interdisciplinary program provides teachers with standards-based and skill-based resources to meaningfully engage students while building knowledge and skills. To meet their students where and how they learn to think, teachers often utilize our competition program materials for their own needs:

  • With a few students or the entire class
  • With teachers or students recording the ideas generated
  • With teacher guidance or as independent work
  • In the classroom or at home

We take connecting with a wide variety of education standards into account when developing and updating our program materials. This focus gives schools and teachers flexibility to tailor our content to meet their specific governing body and school system requirements. Students who learn from home can also participate in our learning activities with the help of a teacher, parent, or mentor.
