QLD State Bowl & Resource Day
Future Problem Solving students and coaches in Queensland are invited to attend the FPS Queensland State Bowl and Resource Information Day on Monday July 24th (8:45 am - 2.00 pm).

Students will work in their own teams of four to complete a Global Issues booklet on a Medical Technology Future Scene within a two hour time frame. Coaches receive fast modified feedback about the booklets. The students then work to present an action skit after lunch.

There will also be a guest speaker to provide further perspectives on the topic, Medical Technology.

This day provides the students with an opportunity to more fully prepare for the real Qualifying Problem which must be completed before August 10. Past experience has shown that students who attend these days are well represented when the Finals invitations are issued at the end of August.

Students can be registered in teams of four as Junior, Middle and Senior teams.

Cost per student: $15. Please note students and coaches need to provide their own morning tea and lunch.

As numbers are strictly limited, please register your teams as soon as possible.

Venue: St Josephs College, Gregory Terrace. Brisbane.
