Future City Competition
www.futurecitypittsburgh.org 

 

The National Engineers Week Future City Competition offers 7th and 8th grade students a resourceful way to learn about engineering. The Pittsburgh Section presents students with a cash award for “The best use of ceramics” in their displays. The judging is based on the specific inclusion of ceramic materials in the model (and the ability to identify them) and the knowledge of the group (or spokes member) of how ceramics/materials would be used in their city of the future.
