How do you feed thousands of urban citizens with less farmable land, growing water scarcity, and increased fuel costs?
Probably best to leave this question to the experts, namely Granite School District junior high students.
“Feeding Future Cities” was the theme for this year’s Future City Competition – a national, project-based experience where junior high students imagine, design and build cities of the future. Students work in teams with mentors to plan cities using digital software and scale models made from recycled materials.
This is Granite’s third year participating in the competition. A group from Olympus Jr. High took the top spot with their city, Cornville. Groups from Brockbank Jr. High and Churchill Jr. High took second and third place respectively.
In addition, groups won medals for high marks in individual sections of the competition:
Research/Essay – Selva, Evergeen Jr. High
Virtual City – Kentucky Fried City, Churchill Jr. High
Physical Model – Iris, Brockbank Jr. High
Team Presentation – Cornville, Olympus Jr. High
