Welcome to the Alabama Regional Competition!

We would like to thank each and every one fo your for visiting our site.  This  is the 12th year that Alabama has competed in the Future City Program and we are eager to get started on another great year!  Alabama's mission is to provide quality extracurricular activities to middle school students who are interested in math, science and engineering fields.  We are dedicated to fostering interest for future careers in engineering.

The Alabama Regional Future City Competition is a state-wide, project-based learning experience where students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade imagine, design, and build cities of the future. Students work as a team with an educator and engineer mentor to plan cities using SimCity™ software; research and write solutions to an engineering problem; build tabletop scale models with recycled materials; and present their ideas before judges annually at the Regional Competition.

The Alabama Regional Competition will be held on Saturday, January 16th, 2016 from 7:30am – 5:00pm at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in the Davidson Center – Saturn V Hall.  This year’s theme is “Waste Not, Want Not”, so get started now researching ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle your city’s waste.
