The Texas Future Problem Solving Program (FPSP) is an affiliate member of the Future Problem Solving Program International (FPSPI). Our mission is to teach students critical thinking and creative problem solving processes through competitive and non-competitive instructional programs so they learn to work with others in designing positive futures.  Texas FPSP is an academic, interdisciplinary program that can be incorporated into any content area, an elective course, or be completed as an extra-curricular activity.  The challenging materials and competitive components are designed to motivate students to think creatively and critically.  We like to say, “Texas FPSP teaches students how to think, not what to think.”
