The Future City Competition is a national educational program developed by the engineering community to promote education, technological literacy and engineering to 6th, 7th and 8th grade students who attend public, private, parochial, charter and home-based schools. Of the over 1200 Arizona students engaged in the competition, 48% were female and 52% were male. Last year the Future City Arizona program had over 189 schools and 233 teams participating in the competition representing 74 Arizona school districts, charter schools and home school programs. The program fosters an interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through hands-on, real world applications. The program starts at the beginning of the school year and culminates with the regional finals in January. The winning team represents Arizona at the national finals held in Washington, DC during Engineers Week in February.
