Creating a puzzle cube is a fun and interesting project, and the result will be fun for all ages 

Step 1:

First, you should create ideas for you pieces. the way i did this was with 27 small block that made my cube, and took them apart without gluing them together. 
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!
Its possible, i am in an intro to engineering, but my teacher has never mentioned PLTW
Let me guess: Project Lead the Way?
Nope, but i have had another ask me about that, so i am interested in what it is <br>
Are you by chance in Project Lead The Way, specifically Intro to Engineering Design? <br>just curious <br>
I am in Into to Engineering, However i have never heard of Project Lead the Way.
To be correct this is called a SOMA cube after the drug in brave new world that kept the population happy. <br> <br>Invented by Piet Hein in 1933 <br> <br>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soma_cube
