“Our kids are not prepared for the future”, “They can’t solve problems!”, “Knowing facts is great, but that is not enough”, “Technology is changing so fast — How will our kids ever keep up?”, “Our schools don’t emphasize problem-solving.”. That’s just a sample. Ask around and you hear lots of the same comments — over and over. Hyperbole? Maybe, but I believe that there will be a gap between what’s needed and that supplied. SuperSOLVERS mission is to fill that gap.
Want To Get Your Kids On The Right Track?
Parents, I want to (and can) improve the problem-solving skills of your children, give them the basics of all things computer-related., and thus, make them more attractive to high schools, colleges, and employers.
It’s not about becoming a professional scientist, programmer, or roboticist. Sure, that might be the path that they take. That’s not important. All of us will be interfacing with increasing amounts of (yes, amazing) technology. I believe that it’s important to understand the fundamentals — at least in an overview. AND, by the way, there will be LOTS of jobs there.
There will be continuing debates about the power of technology and its effect (both positive and negative) on our lives. How can our kids participate if they have little understanding of the technology?
What about our schools? Are they up to the task? It will be a challenge. Can schools adapt to the increasing rate of change? Things are moving fast now, but “you ain’t seen nuthin yet”. So, I expect that there will be a gap.

Just Don’t Listen To Me!
Listen to the words of three famous problem solvers and innovators.
“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” Thomas Edison
“You don’t learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing, and by falling over.” Sir Richard Branson
“If you’re not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you’ve launched too late” Reid Hoffman (LinkedIn)
