Future City is a program that focuses on improving STEM skills in students by providing an exciting educational engineering experience that 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 asked to imagine, design, and build cities of the future. After designing a virtual city (using SimCity), 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. NSBE’s Future City Competition will take place at the Annual Convention.
