    I had one of these when I was a kid....literally hours of fun. There are hundreds of other symmetrical shapes you can make with this puzzle.

    did this for school last year

    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!

    Let me guess: Project Lead the Way?
