The 19th Annual Future C ity Competition was held at MSOE's Kern Center on Saturday, January 21. Forty-two teams competed for the regional title and an all-expenses paid trip to the National Future City Competition Finals, February 17-22, 2012. Students fueled their future cities with environmentally friendly solutions such as piezoelectricity and geothermal energy.
Four teams made it to the finals: Natura Provisi from St. Alphonsus, Solis-Nixus from Tippecanoe, Hyperion from St. Mary's Hales Corners, and Geodynam from Waukesha STEM Academy. Team Hyperion won first place and will advance to the National Competition in Crystal City, Virginia where they will compete for the grand prize of an all-expenses paid trip to Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama. We wish them the best of luck and hope they bring home a first place trophy!
Coming in second place was Natura Provisi, in third place was Solis-Nixus, and in fourth place was Geodynam.
Congratulations to our award winners, to our special award winners, and every team that participated! You made it a spectacular event!
