2005 South Carolina Regional
Future City Competition

The mission of the National Engineers Week Future City Competition is to provide a fun and exciting educational engineering program for seventh- and eighth-grade students that combines a stimulating engineering challenge with a "hands-on" application to present their vision of a city of the future.


This will be accomplished by:

~ Fostering engineering skills, such as teamwork, communication and problem solving skills
~ Providing interaction among students, teachers, and engineer mentors
~ Informing the community about the multi-disciplines within the engineering profession
~ Inspiring students to explore futuristic concepts and careers in engineering


The National Engineers Week Future City Competition requires:
~ Problem-solving
~ Teamwork
~ Research and presentation skills
~ Practical math and science applications
~ Computer skills

The competition employs a team-based approach. All members of the team have an important role that is necessary for the completion of the project.

 

Competition Guidelines:
~ Limited to the first 25 registered schools
~ Teams consist of three students, a teacher and mentor

~ Up to three teams from each school may participate in the regional competition. However, only one team from each school may be in the final round at the regional competition.
~ Workshops to train teachers and mentors will be held at the Ruth Patrick Science Center in August and September
