Future City is a project-based learning program where students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades imagine, research,
design, and build a city that will exist at least 100 years in the future. This year's theme, "The Age Friendly City,"
requires students to envision an urban environment that keeps older adults active, engaged, and independent
while incorporating engineering ideas that would revitalize their city's economy, reduce crime, promote safety,
improve the environment and enhance civic engagement. The group began working in June to present their vi-
sion of the future through a virtual city design (using SimCity software); a 1,500 word city essay; a scale model of
their city (built with recycled materials); a presentation along with a question/answer session with a panel of
STEM professionals.

Hearts & Hands Full of Compassion #MARSHALLSTRONG

During Club Day Reba Wiggins’ club created a
beautiful plaque that reminds everyone that we
should have compassionate hearts and hands to-
ward everyone each day because we never know
what difficulty that person may have or their cir-
cumstances. With that thought in mind, these stu-
dents created a heart using their handprints. It now
hangs in the Wingo Elementary hallway to remind
us all to think of others daily.
