The mission of the Future City Competition is to provide a fun and exciting educational engineering program that combines a stimulating engineering challenge with a "hands-on" application to present their vision of a city of the future.
Each year 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students embark on a transformative experience as they ask and answer the question: How can we make the world a better place? From this simple starting point, teams spend four months imagining, researching, designing, and building cities of the future.
Future City is Program of Clear Lake Council of Technical Societies and IEEE Galveston Bay Section. We are still accepting registrations for Discover-E (South-Texas) Houston Regional Competition 2020-2021 held online this year. The team that earns the top place at our Regional will participate in the Virtual Finals in April 2021.
NEW! Due to COVID-19:
Future City has been restructured. Teams can complete the deliverables in-person (i.e. in a classroom or after school program) or remotely (i.e. collaborating online while learning from home). The competitions (regionals and Finals) will also take place online, rather than in person. Also, the Virtual City is no longer a judged or required deliverable.
PLEASE SEE HANDBOOK AND RESOURCES FOR SPECIFICS:
This year’s challenge, Living on the Moon, asks teams to design a futuristic lunar city and provide examples of how the city uses two Moon resources to keep its residents safe and healthy.
