Frequently asked questions
1. How is the Future City Experience different from the Future City Competition?
The goal of the Future City Experience is to provide educators and students who have not participated in the Future City Competition an opportunity to test out the program without having to make the full commitment of the competition. The Future City Experience is for teachers that are NEW to Future City. The Future City Experience is also completely virtual, whereas the Future City Competition is in-person. The Future City Experience does not involve a competitive aspect; the objective is for students to receive feedback from engineers and to get their project “stamped” by the engineers.
