What is
Future City?

Middle School STEM Program

Future City is a hands-on cross-curricular educational program that brings STEM to life for students in grades 6 through 8.

Doing Things That Engineers Do, Students Build Cities of the Future.

Using the Engineering Design Process (EDP) and project management skills, students showcase their solutions to a citywide sustainability issue. This year’s challenge asks students build a floating city and provide two innovative examples of how your floating city works and keeps its citizens healthy and safe.

US and Around the World

This program has grown to encompass more than 45,000 students annually in the US, Canada, China, Egypt, and Nigeria.

“I think Future City is an easy way to have students have fun and learn about engineering.”

– 7th Grade Student

“Students research, write, build, think, and work as a team. We have lots of clubs at my school, but I think Future City is the most inclusive of all the things we try to teach our kids.”
