Individual FPS

Individual Future Problem Solving is held at the Governor’s Cup State Finals. It is not part of Governor’s Cup. In Individual FPS one student works through the FPS process. Individuals generate 8 challenges in Step 1, and 8 solution ideas in Step 3. Step 2, Step 4, Step 5 and Step 6 are exactly the same as the team competition. Participants have two hours to complete a booklet.
