The mission of the National Engineers Week Future City Competition is to provide a fun and exciting educational engineering program for seventh- and eighth-grade students that combines a stimulating engineering challenge with a "hands-on" application to present their vision of a city of the future.

The competition is intended to: foster engineering skills such as teamwork, communication and problem solving; provide interaction among students, teachers, and engineer mentors; inform the community about the multi-disciplines within the engineering profession; and to inspire students to explore futuristic concepts and careers in engineering.

The National Engineers Week Future City Competition requires:

  • Problem-solving
  • Team work
  • Research and presentation skills
  • Practical math and science applications
