The WMS Future City Team recently competed in the Omaha/Heartland Competition. The WMS team consisted of four 7th graders: Ramya Iyer, Matthew Salfity, Griffin Wolf, and Graham Waterstraat. Future City is a project and competition that focuses on modeling a city that would exist in the future. This years theme was waste management. The WMS team created a city named Coniunctis that uses systems like gasification and BioPlastics to get rid of waste, and hydroelectricity for renewable energy. They also made Coniunctis a city that blends a contemporary industrial scheme with abundant natural resources. It has the best of both worlds. While Coniunctis didn't make it to the finals in the competition, the WMS team had fun and felt accomplished afterwards.
