About  Future City

The Future City Competition is a national, project-based learning experience in which 40,000 students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade from 1,350 schools imagine, design, and build cities of the future. Students work as a team with an educator and engineer mentor to plan cities using SimCity™ software, research and write solutions to an engineering problem, build tabletop scale models with recycled materials, and present before judges at regional competitions in January. NCEES has supported the special prize for Best Land Surveying Practices for the past couple of years. More:  futurecity.org

 

This year’s competition challenge is – The Power of Public Space – asks students to design an innovative citywide system of public spaces. Students shouldn’t  just consider open fields or existing parks and plazas. They should look at sites such as abandoned buildings, old railway lines, waterways (rivers, lakes, ponds), former industrial areas, and the single largest land asset in any city—the streets and sidewalks.
