Old Trail School Grade 7 students participated in the Future City Competition and traveled to Columbus on January 20 for the Ohio Regional Competition. Future City is a project-based learning program in which students imagine, research, design and build cities of the future. With the engineering design process and project management front and center, students work in teams to ask and answer the real-world question: How can we make the world a better place? This year’s task and challenge, The Age Friendly City, asked students to identify an issue older people have and engineer two innovative solutions so they can remain active and independent!
Following a unit of study in science class and internal judging, “Team Tamilo” was selected to advance to the Ohio Regional Competition. After three rounds of judging, Team Tamilo was awarded the Rookie of the Year Award and was recognized as Honorable Mention for Best Use of Recreational Space.
Congratulations, Old Trail School! Great work!
