About

Five separate components are offered in the Alaska Future Problem Solving Program. Each of these components challenge students to develop their ability to solve problems using critical and creative thinking. After a research phase, students use the six-step problem solving process, and present their final analysis in different formats depending on the component. Students can choose to participate in one or more of the components during the year, based on their interests.
