Future City Competition is national competition that focuses on improving student’s math, engineering and science skills. The program is open to students in the 6th, 7th and 8th grades who attend a public, private or home school. The aim of Future City is to provide an exciting educational engineering program for students. It combines a stimulating engineering challenge with an inquiry-based application to present their vision of a city of the future.
Middle-school students will be tasked to imagine, design and build cities of the future. After designing a virtual city (using SimCity), researching, designing and writing up their solution to city-wide issue and building a scale model of their city, teams will present their vision to a panel of judges. NSBE’s Future City Competition will take place at the Annual Convention. This year’s theme: Electrify Your Future. Design a 100% electrically powered city with energy generated from sources that keep their citizens and the environment healthy and safe.
Important: At Annual Convention, NSBE Jr Future City teams will be judged on their city essay, city presentation, city questions and answers, and their project plan. Bringing a physical model is not required.
