The Ultimate STEM Competition.

Future City is a hands-on cross-curricular educational program that brings STEM to life.

Get to Know Future City.

Future City starts with a question – how can we make the world a better place?

To answer it, middle school students imagine, research, design, and build cities of the future that showcase their solution to a citywide sustainability issue.
