The Future City New Mexico Competition, a unique opportunity for middle school children to use their skills in engineering, planning, writing and art to create a vision for the future, was recently held. Learning about how town infrastructures are built and how resources are shared is essential for ensuring sustainable growth for our communities. More than 70 students from 22 New Mexico schools participated in this event. The winning team was Xenex City from Albuquerque Academy. The program is sponsored in part by Sandia National Laboratories and the National Nuclear Science & History Museum.
