Scoring: Up to 10 points

Students work with their team to complete a four-part project plan that will help them stay organized, focused, and on schedule as they complete their other Future City project deliverables.

What is a Project Plan?

A Project Plan is a tool engineers use to manage their work. It’s where students record their project goals, plan how they’ll complete the competition deliverables, and monitor their project’s progress. A well-crafted project plan will help students stay on track as they use the engineering design process to design and build their solution. It’s like a roadmap that students refer to as they move through competition, but it is also changeable. Decisions made at the beginning of the project may turn out to need revising!
