City of the Future designed by Dutch School kids


A model of the city of the future

A model of the city of the future

The Parkschool in Utrecht did a project with all of their classes whereby they got the kids to design the city of the future. The kids then used 3D printers and laser cutters to make a model of this city. Class 7 & 8 designed the model for the city, grade 6 used the lasercutters while grade 5 designed an amusement park. Kids as young as 5 & 6 were involved in making designs for this city of the future. We think that this is a great initiative to teach kids digital fabrication methods as well as get them involved in thinking holistically about the future at a young age.  The City of the Future project has been selected by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs for inclusion in their City of the Future project which is wonderful news!
