WTS NC Triangle - Future City Competition 2016

All Day Event

Future_city

McKimmon Center
1101 Gorman St
Raleigh , NC , 27610



 

WTS - NC Triangle 

encourages you to support the

NC Future City Regional Competition!  

 

It is that time of year again -- the Future City competition is well under way, and competition day is quickly approaching!  In order to ensure competition day runs smoothly, we need some wonderful judges, such as yourselves!  The time commitment is only about 4 hours, 8am to 12pm, on Saturday, January 23rd at the McKimmon Center at NC State.  You will have the opportunity to judge some incredibly creative presentations by 6th, 7th, and 8th grade teams, as well as the physical models that they have created for their future cities.  

 

In addition to the commitment on competition day, we ask that you attend one of two training sessions covering judging responsibilities and other important details about competition day. These sessions will be offered on the evenings of January 12th and 13th, from 6-7pm at Simpson Engineers and Associates, 5640 Dillard Drive, Suite 200, Cary, NC. After your judging responsibilities the morning of the 23rd, we invite you to stay for lunch and the final presentations from the top four teams in the afternoon.

 

This year’s theme is Waste Not, Want Not, which encourages students to design waste management systems for residential use and small businesses by looking at issues such as collection, separation, processing, recycling, health and safety, energy efficiency, environmental impact and cost. Students learn how today’s engineers and city planners deal with citywide sustainability issues like solid waste management. They research cutting edge technologies and imagine and design a plausible and futuristic solution that can exist for generations.” (Retrieved from www.futurecity.org)
