Future Cities Competition Mentors Needed!

FUTURE CITIES COMPETITION MENTORS NEEDED! The Future City Competition asks students to employ critical thinking, teamwork, research and problem-solving skills in order to design a city of the future. The program allows 12 to 14 year-olds an opportunity to design and create a table-top scale city model, write a research essay and give a 7-minute presentation before a panel of judges.  The regional competition takes place at the University of Texas at Arlington in January, with the winning team awarded a trip to the national competition.  Engineer mentors are currently needed for several Future City teams at schools across the Metroplex, including: 

Harmony School of Business in Dallas, TX

Hunt Middle School in Frisco, TX

Coppell Middle School North in Coppell, TX

TCC Generation Hope in Fort Worth, TX

Applied Learning Academy in Fort Worth, TX 

Please contact Thomas Hunt, PE, Mentor Coordinator at thunt@survwest.com to volunteer or if you would like more information about the engineer mentor roles.  You can learn more about the program at http://dfwfuturecity.org/ and about being a team mentor at http://futurecity.org/engineers.
