Teams will use a special booklet for Practice Problem 1
Register for the 2014-15 Season
The registration site for all Future Problem Solving of Virginia programs is now open for business. Because some coaches may prefer to receive their program materials and competitive results at home, coaches this year are permitted to select a contact delivery location other than a school.
Registering coaches for all Virginia programs must use the online registration form.
There is no price increase in program registration this year.
Teams and individuals will have an interesting and engaging list of topics to research and explore for next year's competition:
Practice Problem 1
Impact of Social Media
Facts about social media
Practice Problem 2
Enhancing Human Potential
2014 Competitive Results

Idea Share: Notebook Cover
As an opening activity, students at Robius Middle School in Chesterfield County design a Future Problem Solving notebook cover incorporating the year’s topics. They then share their original creation with other students, searching for classmates whose covers are dissimilar in some particular way. Standing in a circle, participants in small groups explain how they approached the assignment and discuss the implications of having a team composed of members who think differently.
Coach Joanne Stanley submitted this idea.
