The Power of Public Space
Future City is a nationwide effort to involve young students (6th-8th grades) in a competition utilizing STEM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Math) research, processes, and procedures. This year's planning and executions was based around the theme, "The Power of Public Space," and the city had to be 100 years in the future. Shawnee Heights Elementary School (USD 450), has fielded a team the past two years with guidance Mrs. Gina Sobba, who is the gifted facilitator at SHES. She has been assisted both years by Mr. Jim Martin, a retired local engineer, as the team mentor.
