This Year's Theme: Powering Our Future

[Aug-2018] This year's challenge asks participants to design a resilient power grid for your future city that can withstand and quickly recover from the impacts of a natural disaster.

Natural disasters-such as earthquakes, tornadoes, or hurricanes-can pose serious threats to cities. While these events rarely last longer than a day or two, the damage can severely disrupt people's daily lives, especially for exposed and vulnerable populations, and dramatically worsen the rebuilding process.
