This year's competition included teams from many different schools. Participants came from all over South Carolina to participate in this national STEM competition.

Winners are listed below.

DiscoverE’s Future City® Competition is a non-profit educational program that asks middle-school students to imagine, design, and build cities of the future. This year teams of middle school students from Louisiana created future cities in large tabletop models around the theme “Powering Our Future.”


Future City students see engineering as a direct influence on their lives – why math and science are relevant to their world – and make a hands-on connection between their education, Idaho and their future.
