IL Section ASCE Student Outreach – Chicago Regional Future City Competition

January 18 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm

Attire: Business Casual

Competition judges needed!  The Future City Competition is a national, project-based learning experience where students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades imagine, design, and build cities of the future. Students work as a team with an educator and engineer mentor to complete 5 deliverables: a virtual city design using SimCity™ software; a 1,500-word city essay; a tabletop scale model with recycled material; a project plan; and a live presentation to judges. This year’s theme is “Powering Our Future” and challenges teams to design a resilient power grid that can withstand and quickly recover from the impacts of a natural disaster.
