Future City is a cross-curricular program that lets students in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades do the things engineers do: identify problems, brainstorm ideas, design solutions, test and retest, build and then share the results. Students present their solutions via a virtual city design (using SimCity); a 1,500-word city description; a scale model; a project plan, and a presentation to judges at Regional Competitions in January. Regional winners represent their region at the National Finals in Washington, DC in February. After the competition is over, student participants are not only prepared to be citizens of today’s complex and technical world, they are poised to become the drivers of tomorrow.
Have a mentor or team advisor
Organizing Your Team
Teams can have from three to 30 students. Consider the following when organizing your team:
Official Presenting Team — three students, one educator, and one mentor
Multiple Teams — you can form multiple teams, but check how many teams you can bring to regionals.
Other Team formats–use the structure that works best for you.
This is an ongoing program, that currently does not have an expiration date.
