DEC Awards

Think like an Architecture, Engineering and Construction professional, with our exciting project-based learning challenges

DEC Awards are small projects that immerse children and young people in the exciting world of the Built Environment – they learn to design, engineer and construct a range of extraordinary buildings and structures, from spy-themed hotels and live music venues to riverside facilities and rural schools.
