The teams have been working since 8 a.m. Wednesday using items they brought with them, objects found throughout Detroit and items found at Recycle Here.

Three teams from Detroit are competing against teams from San Diego, Chicago, Minneapolis and Mesa, didn’t learn of the topic until the competition began.

The public will be able to view the final creations from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday on Division Street in Eastern Market.
