Think of all of the above rolled into one!!!
We are currently participating in the international Future City Competition, which asks 6th - 8th grade students to design a futuristic city in SimCity, then build a physical model of it, and finally write an essay about the process the took in perfecting their city.
In January we will be presenting our cities in Baton Rouge and hopefully make our way to nationals in February.
When the competition is over, we will engage in a variety of hands-on projects that will focus on green living and the environment, including building a tower garden, constructing a greenhouse, and designing a water filtration system.
