Canstruction 2011
Cans piled high in "cake" masterpiece

For the 14th year running, Tidewater Community College’s Engineering Club took top awards in Canstruction, a design/build competition with a charitable twist.

Team TCC won awards for Most Cans and Best Meal for their Take a Slice out of Hunger entry, which was illustrated by a large, double-layer cake with a missing slice and illuminated candles.

As participants in Canstruction, the group created a masterpiece out of cans to shed light on hunger concerns in the area. On the evening of the build, Nov. 9, in Norfolk's Selden Arcade, the group had just six hours to construct the structure out of 10,532 cans, which were donated by Farm Fresh. The completed project weighs in at close to 5 tons.
