Welcome to City X

The City X Project is an educational workshop for 8-12 year-old students that teaches creative problem solving using 3D printing technologies and the design process. 

Launched in 2013, it has since been used by teachers and students in over 75 countries and nationwide in China.

🧠 Imagination

Given the opportunity to create without limits, what kind of world would kids create?

The World's Youngest Space Engineer

In a pioneering partnership with Made In Space (now part of Redwire Space), one young participant in the City X Project workshop was minted as the world's youngest space engineer, when his City X Project invention was sent to the International Space Station. His invention became one of the first objects ever to be manufactured off of Earth.

A book for kids to design the future, however they dream it.

In 2020, together with Rockport Books, we launched the Design Genius Jr. book series with "Journey to City X: Adventures in Engineering for Kids."

The award-winning book builds on the original story of City X with 35 new hands-on activities for kids to practice design thinking, problem solving, and more.
