LHC's Future Problem Solvers - 04 September 2018

On Wednesday, 1 August, Year 9 students, Hannah Williams, Laura McKay, Hannah Thorpe and Grace Dillon took part in the Qualifying Round of the 2018 Future Problem Solving Program.  Future Problem Solving (FPS) is now an international educational program for students of all ages, focussing on the development of critical, creative and futuristic thinking skills. The program challenges students to apply their minds to some of the most significant issues facing the world of today and the future, equipping them with the vision, skills and tools to design and promote positive futures for the society in which they live. The process used by students involves six steps and is an adaptation of the process developed by Alex Osborn and Sidney Parnes (http://www.fpsp.org.au/about).

 

This team devoted themselves to meeting at lunch time twice a week, to respond to practice questions and receive feedback in preparation for the event. The Qualifying Problem involved an unseen future scene with two hours to complete the booklet in a quiet classroom, unassisted by staff. In preparation, the girls spent time researching this year’s topic, ‘Philanthrocapitalism’ and were ready for the challenge. They should be very proud of their efforts. Results and feedback for qualifying submissions is due next month, alongside the announcement of teams for the national finals. Good luck, girls!
