Students toured the City of Columbia and the MU Engineering school. Future City is a cross-cultural program that lets students in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades do the things engineers do: identify problems, brainstorm ideas, design solutions, test and retest, build and then share the results. http://futurecity.org/

Cleanup Columbia is scheduled for Saturday, April 11, 2015.
What is Cleanup Columbia? Cleanup Columbia is a city-wide trash pick up event where hundreds of local residents work together to make our city a more beautiful place. The city will provide volunteers with trash bags, gloves, safety vests (where needed) and help you find a trash pick up location. Volunteers pick up trash in the morning and are asked to start no later than 10 a.m. Columbia Public Works will pick up your filled bags. This is a wonderful event for individuals and groups of all sizes and people of all ages and abilities. There will be a thank-you picnic at Twin Lakes Recreation Area to celebrate your efforts afterwards, sponsored by APAC-Missouri!
