Future City

At the NAG Fall Workshop, John Thomsen shared information about Future City. It is a program which is intended to promote teamwork and critical thinking in math and science while using a community mentor to work with students. Students use Sim City software to design a future city, and then they research and write a solution to a problem that troubles cities of today and tomorrow. This sounds like a wonderful opportunity for our 7th and 8th grade students in HAL.
