Global Issues Problem Solving

Global Issues Problem Solving

Global Issues Problem Solving (GIPS) is a competitive component of FPSPI which can be accomplished as a team of 4 or individual activity. Participants research a series of global topics and learn a six-step creative problem solving process. Problem solvers apply their topic and creative problem solving knowledge to address a charge presented in an imagined situation, termed Future Scene.

Trained evaluators score student work and return it with feedback including suggestions for improvement. The top scoring teams and individuals on the qualifying problem are invited to Affiliate FPS Competitions. The winners of each respective Affiliate FPS Competition advance to the FPSP International Conference in June.

Four divisions are offered: Junior (grades 4-6), Middle (grades 7-9), Senior (grades 10-12), and Adult.

  1. First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I’d
    like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Cheers! https://anunturi-parbrize.ro/geam-bmw-7.html
