Designing affordable housing for those most in need is enormously complicated. But how to do it while adhering to LEED recognized green building standards, with an emphasis on energy efficiency and a low carbon footprint?
That’s the challenge for Central Pennsylvania's middle schoolers as they prepare to take part in National Engineers Week Foundation’s 2009-10 Future City Competition. Registration deadline for schools nationwide is October 31.
Now entering its 18th year, Future City Competition invites seventh and eighth graders nationwide to create the cities of tomorrow and encourages interest in science, technology, engineering and math through hands-on applications.
For information, school registration, or to volunteer, visit the Future City Competition website or contact Central Pennsylvania Regional Coordinator Bill Sutton at 717-319-3409 or send email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
