Calling on Trinity’s future engineers and creative builders! This year’s Future City project is open to all interested 6-8th grade students and parents who would like to take on the challenge. We are promoting this event as an after-school club. The project needs students with a strong desire to create, build, research, use technology, and dramatically present a city of the future which will take on the environmental challenges society faces. So what exactly is this project?
Future City is a project-based learning program where students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades imagine, research, design, and build cities of the future. Keeping the engineering design process and project management front and center, students work in teams to ask and answer an authentic, real-world question: How can we make the world a better place? Students involved in the Future City Competition spend approximately four months creating cities that would exist at least 100 years in the future. Each city must incorporate a solution to a design challenge that changes each year. This year’s challenge, The Power of Public Space, asks students to design an innovative citywide system of public spaces. In January, students will present their cities before a panel of judges at Regional Competitions throughout the United States, Canada, China, and Egypt. Teams that win their regional competition (United States only) receive airfare and hotel accommodations for five members of their team to attend the Finals held in Washington, DC, in February.
This year’s regional competition, held at the Suburban Showcase in Novi, occurs in late January (to be announced later) with the first place regional team advancing to Finals held in Washington, DC (February 18–22, 2017). Parent coaches are needed to assist in this challenging project! Club meeting days and times will be established to coordinate with students and parent coach schedules. A team consists of three or more students and multiple teams are allowed for this competition. For those interested, please email email@example.com for additional information.
