A competition for 6th, 7th & 8th grade students to foster interest in engineering, math, and science through hands-on, real world applications.
The mission of the Future City Competition is to provide a fun and exciting educational engineering program for sixth, seventh and eighth-grade students that combines a stimulating engineering challenge with a "hands-on" application to present their vision of a city of the future.
This will be accomplished by:
Fostering engineering skills, such as teamwork, communication and problem solving skills;
Providing interaction among students, teachers, and engineer mentors;
Informing the community about the multi-disciplines within the engineering profession;
Inspiring students to explore futuristic concepts and careers in engineering.

A new decade ahead for Future City – hoping that it brings positive changes for the virtual city. Did our students pay more attention to the hydraulic events of Dec. 20th noticing where all that storm water went? Fitting that it was the due date for the City Essay. Thank you for getting your students this far! Our competition day logistics document is being reviewed and should be available for you to share with parents by the end of the week. I have attached a food and hotel map.
