Meet Our Participating Teams

Get ready to witness an extraordinary showcase of innovation and eco-consciousness as nearly 15 college teams, hailing from various corners of California, the United States, and beyond, proudly present ultra sustainable, innovative homes that they designed and will build. For more than a year, these teams have worked hard to craft highly efficient dwellings, each embodying the epitome of sustainability. From October 5-8 and 12-15, 2023, join us at the OC Fair & Event Center to explore these visionary homes during public tours. The event culminates in the crowning of the winner of the inaugural Orange County Sustainability Decathlon, a celebration of sustainability’s boundless possibilities!
