Welcome to the Future City Competition, a national STEM-based competition that provides a fun and experiential challenge for sixth, seventh and eighth grade students.  Future City was developed to help middle school students discover and foster interests in science, technology, engineering and mathematics during the critical years of their education.  The competition is open to all public, private, home, and parochial schools.

  • The Future City Competition program uses problem-based learning, including computer simulation, research and writing, presentations, scale model, and team building.
  • It is an integrated, multidisciplinary, holistic approach to relevant issues and is a strong example of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics) standards for national and state academic content. 
  • Three students create a team with a teacher and an engineer-volunteer.
  • Regional competitions precede the national finals in Washington DC in February, during National Engineers Week.
