BAE Systems to Collaborate with School Students for Canstruction

Mentors from BAE Systems are collaborating with some Johnson City Intermediate School students for a project to benefit charity.

Its all part of a "Cantruction" design.

Monday at 3:30 p.m. the groups will collaborate to a build an American Flag and Etch-a-Sketch board in the middle school lobby -- out of cans! BAE systems will provide the $2,000 worth of cans and later donate them to Catholic Charities.

Canstruction is a can building and showcasing event geared toward deminishing hunger in the Southern Tier.

Teams collect canned goods and construct different objects and later the cans are donated to various organizations.
