New this year, Future City has been redesigned and uses the engineering design process as a framework to guide students through the creation of their cities. Within this framework, students apply specific project management methods to keep their projects on track. This new structure gives students a real world learning experience they can apply to future challenges in school, work and life. Learn more in Leading Your Team.

At Regionals, scores from all five components will be added together to determine the top team. The 1st place team in each region will advance to National Finals held in Washington, DC.
Yes! Future City is first and foremost a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) program. Educators, parents, and mentors are encouraged to adapt Future City to match their individual goals. Talk with your Regional Coordinator about the various options.
