VIRTUAL CITY DESIGN - 48 points

PLAN STAGE of the Project

Virtual City Design is the 1st Deliverable Upload: _______________

Design the City: Average hours spent by the team = 18 hours

Students design a Virtual City using SimCity software and present their city’s progress via the presentation template.

 

The Virtual City is a trial run before kids design their competition city, but it is not a prototype of their city. Rather it’s a chance for kids to experiment and get ideas they can apply to their future city. 

Engineers often use simulation tools, like SimCity, to research different designs to determine which solution works best. Remind kids that they aren’t designing their Future City using this tool: its purpose is to see what the possibilities are. Then they will have a better sense of what could work well when it is time to design their Future City.
