Future City Competition

Competition: Sat., Jan. 18, 2020,
Carnegie Science Center

Carnegie Science Center is your host for the National Engineers Week Future City Competition, an innovative, nationally recognized engineering program for students in grades 6–8. Students work in teams, with a teacher and an engineering mentor, to design a city of the future using SimCity™ software. They build a scale model of their city, write an essay on an engineering-related topic, and present their creation during the local competition. Winners go on to compete in the national finals in Washington, D.C.
