The mission of the DiscoverE Future City Competition 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.
The Philadelphia Regional Future City Competition is a 501.c.3 educational outreach program of DiscoverE. It is one 40 or more regional programs conducted throughout the country with the goal to introduce middle school students to the engineering profession. The Future City Program continues to be on the National Association of Secondary School Principalsí National Advisory List of Student Contests and Activities.
The Philadelphia Regional Competition draws schools from Philadelphia and surrounding counties stretching until we bump into the Atlantic Ocean or the boarders of neighboring regional competitions in New York, Baltimore, and Harrisburg. Students from middle schools 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.
