National Engineers Week Future City Competition

  • 4 people are interested
Image_201810161133

Future City is a STEM competition for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. Over the past several months, teams of middle school students across the globe have imagined, designed, and created cities of the future. Now is your chance to join in the fun. We need volunteers to join judge panels and connect with our participants for live Q&A sessions.

We are looking for STEM buffs/professionals, city enthusiasts, and those interested in hearing creative visions of the future.

Judges will begin by receiving an orientation/training. They will then be guided by virtual room monitors and instructed on when to ask questions of the teams. Judges will ask a mix or pre-determined/provided questions, as well as questions of their own. Judges will have 10 minutes with each team to ask questions and will then score their responses based on rubrics provided by Future City HQ.

Mission Statement

The Future City Competition program, part of the National Engineers Week Foundation, partners engineers with 7th and 8th grade students to solve a stimulating engineering challenge with a hands-on application which presents their vision of a city of the future. The Future City Competition program is aligned with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) initiatives and employs an integrated curriculum approach. While providing students with real-world engineering applications and integration of technology, the multi-disciplinary program also enhances the development of life skills, such as problem-based learning and team building, both of which are critical skills needed in today's work force. Currently, competitions are held in 40 regions around the country with one winner from each region participating in the national competition finals in Washington, DC each February. The program now includes over 30,000 students and 7,500 volunteers from across the United States.
