This past Saturday was Build Day for the BSA’s 2019 CANstruction competition. PCA, a participant since 2005, chose to interpret the theme of “Around the World” by building an object that truly travels around the entire globe – a satellite. Space travel and space related technology are understood and appreciated in all corners of the world. These floating structures are impressive feats of human design that can also be appreciated here on Earth.

The design / build effort was headed up by Dan Molenkamp, Mareesa Graf, and Shaun Hallissey, with help from lots of PCAers. 4,884 cans were used to help launch our satellite into orbit around Mother Earth.
