Future City Competition

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Future City was a project-based program where students in grades 6-8 imagined, researched, designed, and built cities of the future. Schools or recognized youth organizations formed teams.

During the 2020-2021 season, Future City is still a project-based program where students in grades 6-8 imagine, research, design, and build cities of the future. This year, educators or parents can form and lead teams. All deliverables are modified to accommodate distance learning. For example, teams will still build a city model, but students have the option of building sections of the model in separate homes. The final city model deliverable is a slideshow with pictures of the model and a video demonstration of the moving part. Learn More
