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. In January, teams present their projects to judges at Regional Competitions throughout the United States, Canada, China, and Africa. Teams who earn the top spot at their Regionals will participate in the 2022 Finals.
Due to COVID-19: 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.
PLEASE SEE HANDBOOK AND RESOURCES FOR SPECIFICS:
This year’s challenge, A Waste-Free Future, asks teams to use the three principles of a circular economy to design a futuristic, waste-free city. For more information, explore the futurecity.org website for resources and check out the breakdown of each deliverable and connect with us.
