Competition to Design an Innovative, Sustainable, Futuristic City

Future City is a project-based learning program presented by DiscoverEd that starts with a question: how can we make the world a better place? To answer the question, sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-grade students imagine, research, design, and build cities of the future that showcase their solution to a citywide sustainability issue. The 2022–23 theme is climate change. Participants learn to be creative, collaborative, and resourceful, while thinking about how to create a better future for generations to come.

Teachers are invited to join this authentic project in any of these roles: as an Educator facilitating their team’s learning; as a Mentor passing along their professional STEM experience and knowledge; as a Judge evaluating students’ innovative solutions; or as a Volunteer lending a hand at the Regional Competitions.

Teams that win their Regional Competition advance to the Finals in Washington, DC. Future City provides round-trip transportation and hotel accommodation for three student presenters and a mentor on each US team. Winning teams receive prizes from the award sponsors.

Deadlines: The 2022–23 competition will open in August–September 2022. Check the website for details. Schools may design a Future City without competing.
