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!

Nope, but i have had another ask me about that, so i am interested in what it is
Are you by chance in Project Lead The Way, specifically Intro to Engineering Design?

To be correct this is called a SOMA cube after the drug in brave new world that kept the population happy.

Invented by Piet Hein in 1933
