A Three Rivers HomeLink team earned First Place at the Washington State Future City Competition January 21 in Seattle. Members of Team Nayajal*** are Tyson Randall, Jinu Choi, and Alex Newman. Team mentor is Kyungyoun Kim and team advisor is teacher Trevor Macduff.
Using the engineering design process, each team at state created a solution to the theme “The Power of Public Space” and integrated it into a city of their imagining. Each team wrote a 1500 word essay, created a virtual city, and presented in front of several panels of judges.
“Team Nayajal’s city is in India and has successfully cleaned up the Ganges River, one of the most toxic, yet culturally significant places on the planet,” explains Macduff.
