Launch Your Students' Future Today

Future City challenges middle-school students to imagine, research, design, and build cities of the future. After four months of learning how to build a city, researching, designing, and writing up their solution to a city-wide issue and building a scale model of their city, teams will present their vision to a panel of judges. After the competition is over, student participants are not only prepared to be citizens of today’s complex and technical world - they are poised to become the drivers of tomorrow.
