The team from Heritage Middle School emerged victorious at the State DiscoverE’s Future City Competition, and went on to represent Ohio and compete nationally in Washington, D.C. 




Seventh and eighth grade students from Heritage Middle School, led by teacher Anne Bates and engineer Erik McPeek from the Delaware County Regional Sewer District, were honored at the April 9th Westerville City Schools Board of Education meeting for having won the State DiscoverE’s Future City Competition.  For the city they created, called Sophia Vitae (meaning Age is Wisdom), the team was chosen to represent Ohio in the National Future City Competition in Washington, D.C.  This year’s competition, An Age Friendly City, asked participants to identify an age-related challenge that exists in today’s urban environments and engineer two innovative solutions that allow their future city’s senior citizens to be as active and independent as they want to be.
