American school takes Icelandic city to Washington

img_5385_2A young IceNews reader in the United States has been participating in a competition to design a ‘City for the Future’ with her school. Amanda Miller and her friends at Kutztown Area Middle School in Kutztown, Pennsylvania have set their futuristic city, Vetnibörg, in southwest Iceland in the year 2203.

Vetnibörg is powered by hydrogen, heated by geothermal energy and has long since recovered from the current economic crisis.

A fascinating essay on the project can be read here.

From everyone here at IceNews, we wish Kutztown Middle School the best of luck in Washington D.C.!
