Defending national champion Academy for Science and Foreign Language is one step closer to repeating last year’s win after placing first in the regional Future City Competition held at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center Jan. 17.

Sponsored by DiscoverE and a part of Engineers Week, the Future City Competition is a project-based learning experience for students built around the question, “How can we make the world a better place?” As part of the competition, middle schoolers across the country envision, plan and construct cities of the future, while striving to solve the problems of today.    

ASFL will return to Washington D.C. to defend their 2016 title Saturday in the national Future City Competition, celebrating its 25th anniversary.
