JACKSON, TENN (WNBJ)-
Today Discovery Park of America kicked off its fifth annual "Canstruction" jr. Event
Teams of local students ages 10 to 18 designed a 3-d structure, using only canned goods and other limited, approved materials.
“This event goes right to the heart of our mission to inspire children and adults to see beyond a young person who participates in this event is going to walk away with not more knowledge about STEAM, about science, about art and design. And also, we have a lot of fun while we do it," Scott Williams the President and CEO of Discovery Park of America.
The sculptures will be judged and awards presented to the winners.
The sculptures will remain on exhibit at Discovery Park through Nov. 28 then the cans will be donated to local food banks.
