Future City 2021

2021

Future City has made several adaptations due to the COVID-19 pandemic and uncertainty surrounding the school year and extracurricular activities.

Going “Virtual” this Cycle

  • Teams can complete the deliverables in-person (i.e. in a classroom or afterschool program) or remotely (i.e. collaborating online while learning from home).
  • The competitions (regionals and Finals) will take place online, rather than in-person.

Deliverable updates

City Essay:

  • Living on the Moon theme: Design a lunar city and provide examples of how your city uses two Moon resources to keep your citizens safe and healthy.
  • Due Date: 5th February, 2021 Friday

City Model:

  • Teams build a physical model of their future city (to scale) using recycled materials.
  • Teams may create a single model OR multiple model segments.
  • Using a provided template, teams will submit a PDF slideshow containing photos and accompanying descriptions of their model prior to the Regional Competition.
  • Due Date: 6th February, 2021 Saturday

City Video Presentation:

  • Teams record a 7-minute video presentation about their city.
  • The recorded video is due prior to the virtual Regional Competition.
  • The question and answer session with judges will be separate (see below).
  • Rubric is based on presentation content rather than video production.
  • Due Date: 6th February, 2021 Saturday

City Q&A:

  • Q&A with judges has its own rubric this year, rather than being included in the City Presentation.
  • In order to maintain the interaction between students and professionals that makes Future City so special, teams will have an expanded 10-minute Q&A session with judges from the engineering, technical, and city design fields.
  • Sessions will be conducted live via a video conferencing platform and scheduled by your Regional Coordinator.
  • Due Date: 13th February, 2021 Saturday

Project Plan:

  • Teams complete a project plan to help them plan and organize their project.
  • Due Date: 6th February, 2021 Saturday

Region Final Date -  13th February, 2021 Saturday

Remember: the Virtual City Slideshow is no longer a required deliverable. Teams can use SimCity as an educational tool (codes will be provided) but nothing is submitted or scored.

All the submission for the Future City 2019-20 should be uploaded to the CMS system to avoid any deductions.

The project involves several components: a virtual model of the futuristic city, a physical model of a section of the city, an essay and a presentation. The students work with guidance from their teacher and an engineering mentor.

“We wanted to develop the future engineers, attract them to the field. This is what matters,” says Osama MohammedDistinguished Professor, Associate Dean for Research. Director, Energy Systems Research Laboratory  who has organized the event for the past 16 years. “This event is supporting a lot of future engineers.”
