Planning an urban agriculture system for a future city of 84,000 people only took a month for the Chisholm Trail Middle School Advanced Science Technology Engineering and Math club to complete, and they hope they won’t need to use the model any time soon.

According to the organization, the Future City Competition is a national project-based learning experience where middle school students imagine, design and build cities of the future.
