2015-2016 Schedule

The Future City Competition is a national program sponsored by the engineering community to promote technological literacy and engineering to middle school students. The program fosters an interest in math, science, and engineering through hands-on, real world applications. The competition is open to all public, private and parochial schools. The national finals of the Future City Competition are a featured event around Engineers Week, February 21-27, 2016, with students from across the country competing in Washington, D.C. This year National Engineers Week and the National Finals of Future City do not align.
