Last Friday, we built our power generation systems and drafted a layout of our city. Today, we continued where we left off last week and started painting our city. After learning about various topics this week concerning "food and sustenance" of a smart city , the Elusive Silver Tigers decided to put a farm on the outskirts of our city. The farm serves a dual purpose; to produce local food and to serve as a composting station, allowing city dwellers to reduce the amount of organic waste that gets sent to the landfill.

Our city has wind turbines near the coast to serve as a tourist attraction and to take advantage of the sea breeze. We split the class into three teams; Food and sustenance, Water and Energy. Each group had specific tasks and representatives were chosen to share and draft their ideas on a dry erase board. Our class accomplished a lot today; we began to paint the natural terrain of the city, decided on a power generation and electric storage system, built a wind powered building and a lego water desalination plant. Today marks the end of our second week of camp and a successful first half of the program. Next week's theme will be transportation and I look forward to sharing the knowledge I've obtained from my "Introduction to Traffic Engineering" class.
