Future City Update
Wednesday, February 7, 2018 9:20 AM

The Star Je Novi Mladi (SJNM) team is hard at work preparing for our trip to Nationals! Our model is almost ready to ship, we are researching and rehearing our Special Awards with our Engineer Mentor, and we are rehearsing our presentation with 8th Grade ELA teacher and thespian extraordinaire Ms. Wender! It’s all coming together!

Be sure to follow our journey on Twitter @JPMSSTEAM and on the JPMS STEAM Facebook page!

In other news, the Future City MN Regional Scores are in. After the morning rounds, SJNM was in second place overall, and Civitatem Vita was in third place. And, Civitatem Vita was only 0.75 points behind SJNM!

Unfortunately, Civitatem Vita was hit with an 8.76 point deduction, as two teams from the same school cannot be in the Top 5.

At different points in the day, Justice Page Middle School was in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place! And fun fact: Civitatem Vita had the highest presentation score of the day, meaning Justice Page Middle School had the Best Essay (SJNM), the Best Model (SJNM), and the Best Presentation (CV) at MN Regionals! That's 3 out of 4 of the project components!

With both teams having members in 7th grade, we are looking forward to an equally strong showing next year! Interested students should sign up for the Future City elective when registering for classes for next year.
