2022 Future City Regionals
January 22 @ 8:00 am - 3:30 pm
Future City starts every year with an important challenge topic—how can we make the world a better place? To answer it, 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade students imagine, research, design, and build cities of the future that showcase their solutions that address worldwide sustainability issues.
This year’s theme, “Waste-Free Future,” challenges teams to identify and tackle challenges related to eliminating waste.
Teams will be asked to design a waste-free city that uses the principles of a circular economy.
