Design an Irresistible Future. In settling another planet, humans discover a host of challenges, much like those faced on Earth. The Mayor of City X has established an elite engineering team called the Irresistible Futures Agency, charged with tackling major challenges like:Energy, Environment, Transportation, Security, Food, Safety, and Health.
As an Irresistible Futures engineer, kids (and adults!) come up with their own unique solutions to big problems. They use design thinking, systems thinking, and other problem-solving activities that are part of being a good engineer for the future.
Activities help them:
Explore the impact of global challenges
Make complex issues simple and understandable
Imagine a better future
Create solutions to the challenges they care most about
Share their best ideas with the world
Along the way, readers learn about real-world innovators and technologies that are making this future possible, from inventors building megastructures in space to companies powering cities with baby poop.
