Future City Volunteer Sign-Up
Future City starts every year with an important challenge topic—how can we make the world a better place? To answer it, 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade students imagine, research, design, and build cities of the future that showcase their solutions that address worldwide sustainability issues. This year's theme, "Clean Water: Tap Into Tomorrow," challenges teams to design a resilient system to maintain a reliable supply of clean water.
