Launch Your Students' Future Today

Future City is a project-based engineering education program that challenges middle-school students to imagine, design, and build cities of the future.

Teams learn about the wonders of engineering, use the engineering design process to address civic and social issues, and become change-makers in their own communities.

Future City is going VIRTUAL for the 2020-2021 program cycle! Learn what that means and the changes we've made here.

Lead a Team (in person or online!)

Team educators guide teams through the transformative Future City program. We offer many resources to help you and your team succeed!

Educators may be classroom teachers - whether they are teaching in person or online, out-of-school-time program leaders, homeschool leaders, and even parents, during the 2020-2021 program cycle. Learn more about the educator's role here and register for the 2020-2021 competition!

Be a (Virtual!) Mentor

Team mentors share their engineering and technical experience, act as a coach and leave a lasting impression on young team members. They act as role models to inspire team members' future careers and help translate academic concepts to the real world of engineering.

This program cycle, we are encouraging virtual mentoring. You can mentor a team nearby or across the country, it's up to you! Learn more.

Serve as a Judge

Judges help determine winning teams using assessment tools called rubrics. You can choose to judge any deliverable: the City Essay, City Model slideshow, City Presentation video, or City Q&A, which will be conducted live.

 All judging in the 2020-2021 program cycle will be conducted virtually. Judges can participate at the Regional and/or Finals level of competition. Learn more about this inspiring opportunity.
