Over the last few weeks I’ve been privileged to be involved in a few workshops for the DEC! EcoClassroom.
Check out details here…..http://designengineerconstruct.com. We form groups into design/build companies, they produce branding, do research and produce a facility that is green, for the community and for education. It involves building and landscape design with some surveying for good measure! Each team member has a role, director, architect, surveyor, etc…
Collaboration is key to success. The groups present their findings to a group of judges. I’d like to make a few people I know do this – they might learn a thing or two!
It is an intense few hours but we have a great time with the students. Their ideas are amazing and I find it fascinating what they come up with! Their IT skills even at this age (Year 9/10) would put a few industry people I know to shame! Through the workshops some students have already shown an interest in the industry.
DEC! (Design Engineer Construct) needs sponsorship, volunteers and schools to work with.
Do something today for tomorrow! Join up !
