Are you familiar with Future City Competition?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have experience with the Future City Competition?


Dd12 is thinking about starting a homeschool team, but I don't know much about it.


I'd love to know:

  • How homeschool friendly is it?
  • What is the time commitment for students and parent-volunteers?
  • How much physical space do I need in my home for the model city?
  • Did you think it was a worthwhile activity and why?
  • Is there anything else a new team ought to know?



Thanks for your help!

I'm only familiar with it from a school perspective, sorry! I do know that the group usually spends two after school afternoons per week on their project (3-4:30), with additional time by individuals at home. Dd's good friend has definitely enjoyed the process.


The team had a very strong, organized leader for the first four years (?) and usually did very well. I don't know how it is run now since her youngest graduated.
