The Philadelphia Regional Future City Committee is gearing up again for the 2012 Competition! Schools from
throughout the Philadelphia region are working hard on their cities. Teams made up of 6th, 7th, and 8th graders are
working with their teachers and engineer mentors to:
Design a city of the future using Maxis SimCity 3000TM software.
Build a working model of a portion of their city using recycled products.
Write an essay about city planning and design issues.
Verbally present their city to a panel of judges from the engineering planning, and architecture communities.
Every year all of the participating teams receive at least one special award. The Future City experience is rewarding for
both students and the dedicated volunteers who make it possible.
We need many volunteers for the following opportunities. Please mark your preferences:
