Future City Competition

Students stand behind their projectThe Future City Competition uses the engineering design process as a framework to guide students through the creation of their cities. Within this framework, students apply specific project management methods to keep their projects on track. This structure gives students a real-world learning experience they can apply to future challenges in school, work and life. 

Students spend approximately four months creating cities that exist at least 100 years in the future and represent the team's solution to a citywide sustainability issue. The competition is made up of five project deliverables.
