What do students get out of Future City?
Leading Your Team
Building a city of the future is an exciting and complex project. To successfully lead your team through the competition, you've got two powerful tools:
- The Engineering Design Process--helps you design and build your solution to the Future City challenge
- The Project Management Cycle--keeps your project on track
How Do the Processes Work Together?
Putting these two together is a win-win! Each step of the Engineering Design Process aligns with a different stage of the Project Management Cycle. The Future City Challenge follows the stages of both processes, serving as a framework to guide you through the competition.
