St. John Lutheran School
Imagine a city where the vibrations of traffic charge batteries for electric cars, and where those cars can snap into trainlike mass transit. Those were among the ideas that St. John Lutheran School in Rochester used to design a city in China centures into the future. And that city was judged the best of 25 entries in Monday’s Engineering Society of Detroit’s 19th annual Michigan Regional Future City Competition.
After a fierce day of competition featuring more than 600 students and 25 schools from throughout the State of Michigan, last year’s champions, the team from St. John Lutheran School in Rochester, grabbed first place to win this year’s Best Future City. St. John also won first place in 2009.
