This Saturday, January 21, 2017, will be the 21st annual Philadelphia
Regional Future City Competition which will be held from 8:30 to 5PM
at Archbishop Carroll High School in Radnor, PA. This event features
students demonstrating what they’ve learned about Science Technology
Engineering and Math (STEM) over the past few months of research. The
students have developed solutions to real-world issues, and utilized
creativity to design a city of the future. The event on Saturday
features hundreds of talented students, many from local Catholic
schools, giving presentations to practicing engineers and the public.
The mission of the Future City Competition (
http://www.futurecityphilly.org/ ) is to provide a fun and exciting
educational engineering program for middle school students that
combines a stimulating engineering challenge with a “hands-on”
application to present their vision of a city of the future. It is a
501.c.3 educational outreach program of the National Engineers’ Week
and DiscoverE (http://www.discovere.org/ ). We are one of 39 regional
programs conducted throughout the country with the goal to introduce
middle school students to the engineering profession.
The competition draws approximately 50 schools in Philadelphia and
surrounding counties. Students from middle schools and after-school
programs in the region form teams consisting of 6th, 7th, and 8th
grade students who work with a teacher and an engineer mentor from
September to January. The winner of the event moves on to the national
finals, where the winner gets to meet the president of the United
States and get a trip to Space Camp.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
