Middle schools from New York City and Long Island compete in a regional competition. This year's New York City Regional Competition will be held at SONY Wonder Technology Lab in midtown Manhattan on Saturday, January 19, 2013. The winning team advances to Washington, D.C. to compete against teams from across the country in the national finals of the Future City Competition, a featured event during National Engineers Week.
Teachers, Students and Parents
Competition Planning Committee
Mentors should be an engineer from the New York City metropolitan area who is interested in visiting a local middle school approximately 7-10 times between September and January (one visit every 3 weeks).
Each time you visit the school you will go over a different engineering topic with the students, for example: bridges, buildings, zoning, power supply, power production, water supply, pollution, traffic impacts, transportation, manufacturing, etc. These topics do not have to be spoken about in complete detail; a general overview of each topic will suffice as the students are in seventh and eighth grades. Mentors can be from any engineering discipline, but should have a general knowledge of most of the topics listed.
We welcome local engineering firms to become sponsors of the competition and help the next generation of engineers to learn the benefits of our profession. The New York City Regional Competition is supported by contributions from local engineering businesses and professional societies. If your organization would like to become a sponsor, please see our sponsorship page. Sponsors of the 2011-12 competition included:
