Team 5: Enterprise Engineering, Inc.

(aka The Alley CANs)

CANstructure: Spare What You Can (Bowling Pins, Ball)

CANs: 6,150


The Alley CANs from Enterprise Engineering, Inc. CAN’t help but love three things: designing cool structures,
helping their community, and of course, bowling! These league champs are taking you back to the bowling alley for the 2022
CANstruction tournament.  The game is afoot with this years’ theme.  And that foot is in a bowling shoe. It was all fun and games until the Alley CANs learned that 1 in 6 children in Alaska struggle with hunger.  That’s why they are sparing what they CAN to provide healthy foods to strike out hunger in Alaska. All the CANs in the Alley CANs structure meet the Food Bank of Alaska’s Most Wanted List (no CANdy here).  The Alley CANs scored a well-balanced diet of:
Tuna ,Black Olives, Carrots, Corn, Green Beans, Peas     and Potatoes.

In their 10x10x10
CANvas, these pin-gineers built three eight-foot-tall bowling pins and a three-foot-tall bowling
ball.  Each pin was assembled with approximately 1,050
CANs of assorted veggies, while the bowling ball was
created from 3,000
CANs of tuna.  No veggies were rolling down their gutter.  6,150 CANs makes a signifiCANt
difference. Even when the pins are split the
CANstruction event provides bumpers to aid the Food Bank in their aim to CANcel
out hunger in our state.  The Food Bank always accepts donations. So, c’mon and join us.  Spare what you
