Students Engineering a Vision of the Future
By: Monique Gaudin
In 1982, the National Engineers Week Committee began sponsoring an Annual National Future City Competition for students in 6th, 7th and 8th grade to foster interest in math, science and engineering through hand-on, real world applications. Saturday January 19, 2013 marked the 14th annual Southern Nevada’s entry into the competition. Thirty teams competed to be the state representative in the National Finals February 15 to 20, 2013 in Washington, DC.
Guy Voss, one of the co-coordinators, gave a quick outline of the event.
