Future City Competition

The Future City Competition (FCC) is a national, cross-curricular 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.

FCC runs from September to January. Students work as a team with an educator and engineer mentor to 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; and present their ideas before judges.

Public, private, and home schools, as well as organized youth groups (Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, 4-H, Boys & Girls Club, etc.), are welcome to form teams and compete in Future City. The registration fee is only $25. For more information and to register, please visit: www.futurecity.org/Minnesota
