Are you interested in Engineering?
The Future City Competition (FCC) is a national program that lets 6th - 8th graders do the things engineers do: identify problems, brainstorm ideas, design solutions, test and retest, build and then share the results. Students have a blast working as a team to build a city engineered to meet the needs of a community 100 years in the future.
Students use math, science, technology, and writing, to solve real-world problems in this afterschool activity. While working as a team with a teacher and engineer mentor, students will:
develop a project plan
create a virtual city design with SimCity™ software
research and write a proposed solution to an engineering challenge
build a tabletop city model with recycled materials
present their ideas before judges.
Future City teams meet weekly from October through January, and compete at the MN Regionals in Minneapolis in January.
