6 - 8th Grade...The Future City Contest is going Virtual!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and uncertainty surrounding the school year and extracurricular activities, Future City has been restructured so that 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 also take place online, rather than in-person. For more information about the competition, check out their website.

Keep in the know...

These social media platforms will be updated regularly to make announcements, share ideas, and to let you know what is going on around the region!
