Future City Competition

Where better to place the reigns of innovation than in the hands of young minds! This year the the Carnegie Science Center in partnership with DiscoverE invites 6th, 7th and 8th graders to explore the realm of Urban Agriculture for their 2014-2015 Future City Competition. This year’s theme is “Feeding Future Cities”. Students are invited to closely examine urban agriculture and develop modern solutions that promote sustainable food production.

Opportunities like these are a crucial part of preparing our future leaders to be creative visionaries. The deadline for schools to register is October 15, 2014 and they can do so at www.futurecity.org. Prospective participants including students, teachers, and volunteers should check out the Facebook page for more information and updates!
