“We built this by thinking about problems in our community and how to solve them,” said Megan Nie, who’ll be entering sixth grade in the fall, as she showed off a detailed model of a modern city last week. The venue was no typical summer camp, but NYU Tandon School of Engineering, where Nie and her fellow middle schoolers were capping off a four-week program, the Science of Smart Cities (SoSC), in which they learned about energy, transportation, urban infrastructure, and wireless communications.
