Minnesota Future City Competition

Future City is a project-based program where students in grades 6-8 imagine, research, design, and build cities of the future.

Schools or recognized youth organizations can form teams. Student teams are guided by a teacher and an engineer mentor.

Teams work from September to January to complete 5 projects: virtual city design, city essay, physical city model, team presentation, and project plan. You can learn more here about the competition's deliverables here.

Minnesota Future City culminates at the regional competition on January 19, 2019 at Dakota County Technical College in Rosemount.

The 2018-2019 theme is Powering Our Future. Teams will design a resilient power grid for their future city that can withstand and quickly recover from the impacts of a natural disaster.

Register today!
