This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. 14-year-old Hannah Hudson is New Zealand's Future Problem Solving champion, and she has a message for all of us: we need to teach kids a systematic approach to problem solving.

A year 10 student at St Andrew’s College in Christchurch, Hannah Hudson has already found her passion: Future Problem Solving, an international educational program in which she has been involved for the past 4 years. Hannah has competed at the nationals twice, placing 4th in 2011 and winning the championship in 2013; she went on to represent New Zealand at the International Future Problem Solving conference in Iowa earlier this year.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
