Three teams from Milton Public Schools will be advancing to the state level for the Future Problem Solving Bowl on Saturday.
Teams from Pierce Middle School, Collicot Elementary School, and Glover Elementary School qualified after receiving top scores in an earlier competition.
The state competition will be held at Massachusetts Maritime Academy.
The Future Problem Solving program helps students work on critical and creative thinking skills, encouraging students to develop a vision for the future. Students come up with creative solutions to problems – in the past, topics have included “How to Deal with Space Junk,” “International Adoptions,” and “Megacities.”
The Pierce Team, coached by Jen Gilbert and Nicole Hoyceanyls, consists of Hue-Ninh Nguyey, Sachin Meier, and Jordan Bacci, with Pierce student Timothy Karoff competing as an individual.
The Collicot Team, coached by Anna Higgins, is Jackson Humphries, Kate Delaney, and Shea Flanagan, with Nora Kleiman and Molly Murtagh competing as individuals.
The Glover team, coached by Christina Reynolds, is Ella Zimmermann, Hudson Smith, Matthew Creamer, and Kate Possi.
