Future City 2022

2022

Future City is continuing several adaptations that were made due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Bookmark this page for continued important updates throughout the program cycle!

Virtual vs In-Person

  • 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).
  • It is too soon to decide whether the competitions (regionals and Finals) will take place in-person or online. Your Regional Coordinator will keep you updated!
  • Short video: Future City is “Going Virtual”… what does that mean?

Deliverable updates

Each deliverable has a short informational video – find those links below.

City Essay:

  • This year’s theme: A Waste-Free Future! Teams will use the three principles of a circular economy to design a futuristic, waste-free city.
  • No change to the format.
  • 54 points

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.
  • 55 points
  • Watch this short video about the City Model deliverable.

City Video Presentation:

  • Teams record a 7-minute video presentation about their city.
  • The recorded video is due prior to the Regional Competition. Check with your Regional Coordinator for specific deadlines.
  • The question and answer session with judges will be separate (see below).
  • Rubric is based on presentation content rather than video production.
  • 50 points
  • Watch this short video about the City Presentation deliverable.

City Q&A:

  • Q&A with judges has its own rubric, 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 either live in person or via a video conferencing platform. Stay tuned for more updates from your Regional Coordinator.
  • 49 points.

Project Plan:

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