The competition was tough, but after the score cards were in, NTH representatives declared Sarah Banks Middle School Team 1, from Wixom as the winner of the Best Engineered Project category. Their city was well designed and they had great answers for all of the judges' questions about their infrastructure, buildings and more. In speaking with their teacher we found out that Sarah Banks Middle School decided to support the program by making it part of their STEM curriculum. For this reason, the kids don’t stay after school to work on their projects (like most schools). Also, since they have so many kids participating in the program, there is an internal competition among their students to see who will represent their school and actually present at Future City. For all those kids who do not present at Future City, they continue on with their project and present within their classrooms. It’s a prestigious honor at their school to even be selected to present at Future City. So you can imagine how thrilled they were to receive the Best Engineered Project award!
