Solving future's problems

April 06, 2011

About 1,000 Future Problem Solvers from around the state filled Clarkston Junior High School for the Michigan Future Problem Solving State Bowl, March 26-27.

"We have to be very creative and think outside the box," said Phoebe Morris, Clarkston Junior High ninth grader, who competed against students in grades 10-12 with her team members, 10th graders Lauren Ubbing and Brooke Huisman.

"We have to be efficient," said Huisman.

"We have to go all out in the skit Ė donít be afraid to be as creative as you can," Ubbing said.

"Future Problem Solving is incredible," said Elizabeth Huisman, Brooke's mother. "They're learning a lot about water quality. It's a great program."
