DURHAM: Grade 6-8 students from different elementary schools around Durham all came together on January 22nd at UOIT in Oshawa to showcase their city planning projects. The students were asked to create a model of a city 100 years in the future with this year’s theme “Powering Our Future”. With this in mind, the students had to include a power grid in their city plans that would be immune to extreme weather. This Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) program ran in 20 different schools in the Durham District School Board. The competition was hosted by the UOIT Faculty of engineering, with over 80 projects registered, making this year’s event one of the biggest yet.
