Future Cities Team Wins Awards - Feb 2021

Future Cities Awards

On Saturday evening, February 27, the Future Cities team from Black Hawk Middle School received two awards for their city on the moon named Emporia.

These students have been working since the start of the school year remotely and still managed to build a model, write an essay and give a seven minute presentation. Team Emporia was the vision of sixth grade students: Zachary Browning, Gabriel Rubin, Jonathan Rubin, Tyler Haffely and Caleb Rustin. In their first ever competition they took home two special awards!

After meeting with engineers from all over the country (via zoom) Emporia earned their awards in the categories of Safe Drinking Water and Innovative Constructability.

During the final meeting on Saturday evening they also were able to hear an interesting speech from former University of Minnesota Golden Gopher, Emily Stough, who was instrumental in the landing of the Mars rover Insight.

Congratulations Panthers!
