Two competitions for students in grades 6–8 are coming up:
- Future City is a competition focused on tackling challenges of our infrastructure and natural resources. It is a cross-cultural program that allows students to do things engineers do: identify problems, brainstorm ideas, design solutions, test and retest, build, and share results.

- The Electric Car Challenge is a battery-powered model car race and design competition that helps generate enthusiasm for STEM skills in middle school students. Teams are provided everything they need to power a battery model car, including design materials to construct the car (e.g., chassis, wheels, gears). A teacher workshop will be held Saturday, Sept. 26, from 9 am–1 pm in Espanola (location TBD). Competition date is November 21. Register today
