Canstruction® is a unique international nonprofit organization which hosts competitions, exhibitions and events showcasing large structures made entirely out of full cans of food. After the structures are built the creations are on display to the public as an art exhibition. At the end of the viewing, all food will be donated to a charity. Canstruction fits with the vision of the TCS curriculum by providing students opportunities for collaborative, hands-on learning targeting real world problems – in this case, hunger. Students integrate the skills of math and geometry, art and design, physics and engineering, as well as 3D rendering in creating their structures, and the community service component makes this a win-win for all involved.
