Future City Competition

Join us on January 13, 2018 for the Wisconsin Regional Future City Competition at MSOE's Kern Center.  Students from across Wisconsin will be competing for the state title as well as the opportunity to compete at the National Competition in Washington D.C. where the winning team receives an all expenses paid trip to Space Camp! 

The event is free and open to the public, feel free to stop by and discover what today's generation envisions for our future!

What is Future City?

The competition introduces middle school students to engineering while they create a city of the future.  With the help of an engineering mentor and a teacher, teams of middle school students create a virtual city using SimCity software, write a 1,500 word city description on this year's challenge: The Age-Friendly City. Students must identify an age-related challenge that exists in today's urban environments and engineer two innovative solutions that allow your future city's senior citizens to be as active and dependent as they want to be. Students also build a to-scale model of their city using recycled materials and give a 5-7 minute presentation to a panel of STEM professionals.
