City Of The Future
Designing Our Cities For The Year 2100
Our City Of The Future program will see students working on challenges to look at how technology is used in our cities, and we can use innovations from around the world to design our connected cities of the future.
We live in a world with technology that is faster, smaller, easier to use and more affordable than ever before. With toothbrushes that can track what teeth you’ve brushed, fridges that can automatically order you milk as soon as you run out and even robots that can keep your pets and children entertained while you’re away, we’re seeing technology being used in every facet of our lives.
In our City Of The Future program we will see students looking at how we use technology to make our lives easier, more efficient and more enjoyable. This session will see students exploring how technology is used in their city, and how they can use innovations from around the world to redesign a city of the future.
Throughout the program, students will be developing a diverse range of skills. The key themes of this program centre around:
By the end of the program, students will be showcasing their technology solutions to challenges around their city.
