Canstruction® Calgary 2012: The Universe - Yours to Discover

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Feb. 23, 2012) - Looking for an adventure that is truly out of this world? Get lost in space at Canstruction® Calgary's charity event. Witness the cosmos being created out of canned goods by local businesses and schools. It will be an affair of truly astronomical proportions!

WHEN: Public viewing opens March 1 at noon until closing March 9

WHERE: TELUS Spark - the new Science Centre

WHO: 15 teams including three schools

Canstruction® Calgary is an amazing competition using canned food and other non-perishable items as building blocks. Teams create extraordinary structures, which are judged, exhibited to the public and then de-canstructed, with all food going to the Calgary Food Bank. In its first six years, Canstruction® Calgary has donated almost $600,000 in food and funds.

Presented in an exciting new venue this year - Calgary's new Science Centre, TELUS Spark - the 7th annual Canstruction® Calgary is shaping up to be the best year yet with 15 teams of architects, engineers and a record number of students mentored by these professionals, competing to produce the most out-of-this-world structure.
