The mission of the Louisiana Future City Competition is to provide a platform for middle school students to prepare for their own futures and better understand the processes of research, engineering design, problem-solving, working as a team, testing and retesting, while using knowledge and skills that mirror the STEM workplace.
The Power of Public Space is an important consideration when developing environments that nurture the spirit and provide individuals with places that expand horizons and help all of us learn new things, play, enjoy the surroundings, and meet others. The Five Competition Deliverables can tap into everyone's talents! Middle school students can work in small groups or subsets within a classroom, participate in a Future City club, boy or girl scout group, museum cohort, and the list goes on and on...the sky's the limit!
Join us in preparing Louisiana middle school students for an INCREDIBLE LEARNING EXPERIENCE! You have the flexibility to develop your own timeline for each of the competition components that best suits you and your students. As long as you have uploaded your five deliverables, Virtual City Design, City Essay, City Model, City Presentation, and Project Plan by January 9, you will be on track and ready for the competition! We are looking forward to having you with us January 21 at the Design Building on the Louisiana State University campus, Baton Rouge!
