Competing in Future City
Future City is a team effort, made up of students, an educator, and a engineer mentor. Form Your Team
Every member of the team plays an important role:
The competition is made up of five components. Teams are judged and scored on each one and can earn up to 400 points. The Virtual City Design, Research Essay, and City Narrative are all due before the Regional Competitions. The Model and Team Presentation is judged at the Regional Competitions. 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. (Note: Airfare, hotel accommodations, and a number of meals are paid for by the Future City Competition.) National Finals will be February 15–20, 2013.
