The Future Problem Solving Program International (FPSPI) publication, Problem Solving Across the Curriculum, emphasizes that FPSPI teaches a technique for constructively analyzing a topic or issue. The topics are chosen from strands to offer students opportunities to research various future scenarios and think about the future. It is important that students learn how to overcome obstacles or barriers when confronting challenges and developing solutions to social, political, scientific, economic and technological issues. FPSPI provides this opportunity and emphasizes academic skills.
