On January 19th, three teams from The Rhoades School competed in the Southern California Regional Future City Competition. The Future Cities Competition challenges students to design and build a city that offers solutions to real-world problems using STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills. This year, the Future City Competition theme was “Powering Our Future,” challenging students to design a resilient power grid for their future city that can withstand and quickly recover from the impacts of a natural disaster. The three teams, named Imperium, Alpha City and Cadenza City, competed with a total of 22 teams from throughout the region. At the close of the competition, Imperium placed fourth overall and received the “Excellence in Resilience Engineering” award, Alpha City placed fifth overall and earned the “Best Land Surveying Practices” award, and Cadenza City received the “Most Sustainable Environmental Practices” award.
Our students’ achievements were also published in the North Coast Current.
Congratulations to our students for their innovative accomplishments!
