Our Principal again was asked to contribute to the success of the Nevada Future City Competition for the 2013-2014 middle school year as a Lead Future City Competition Judge. The annual event will occur on Saturday January 18th, 2014 at the Northwest Career and Technical Academy.
The competition’s is described within program materials as:
“The Future City Competition is a program designed for 6th, 7th and 8th graders to foster an interest in math, science, engineering, architecture, and construction through hands-on, real-world applications. The students create and design a city of the future by engaging in the planning, engineering design and building process – identifying problems, brainstorming ideas, designing solutions, testing, retesting and building, and finally communicating their results.”
Each year, one specific theme is highlighted for the essay portion of the competition – this year’s essay topic is “Tomorrow’s Transit – design a way to move people in and around your city”. Huard when asked provided “I am really happy to continue to be involved as a Lead Future City Competition Judge. The Competition is growing as part of Engineers Week and in addition really puts a high focus on STEM Education and particularly tectonics where the students are hands-on with developing their projects. The topic of Tomorrow’s Transit is particularly relevant here in the western part of the United States where we need focus to drift from single person vehicles to more purposeful transit solutions that are effective and more environmentally friendly.”
