The team worked under the guidance of Teri Hanby, the middle school math coordinator, and technology teacher Erin Dymowski. The theme for the 2020-21 academic year is “Living on the Moon.” Teams had to design a futuristic lunar city and provide examples of how that city uses two moon resources to keep its residents safe and healthy.

Participants had to complete the following: a city essay; a scale model or multiple model segments built from recycled materials; a project plan; a presentation video; and a virtual question-and-answer session with judges. Regional winners will move on to the international finals.
