PLTW is a high school engineering program. Intro to Eng. Design is the first class. Civil Eng. and Architecture is in there, and Digital Logic. You get credit for college engineering classes. I was in it a few years ago, and this puzzle cube was our first project. I used the exact same process as you, so it looks very familiar!
