Introduction: 3D TicTacToe How To
This exercise is proposed by NOD Makerspace as an exercise included in the Makers for Inclusion Erasmus Plus project.
The exercise draws inspiration from here: https://www.instructables.com/id/3D-Tic-Tac-Toe/ but it has been tweaked to suit the project's target audience and equipment available in Romania.
The exercise consists of a simple tic tac toe game with a twist: 3 dimensions!
This exercise gives children a chance to learn how to use workshop equipment and gives them an extra game to play.
Please make sure you are working in a space suitable for minors, with all safety precautions in place.
- wood plank
- dowel rods
- wooden blocks (or beads)- or anything that can fit through the dowel rods
- drill press (or handheld drill) + drill bits
- saw (hand or power)
Step 1: Choose Your Materials to Fit Your Design
Start by thinking about your design.
The materials you choose have to be able to work and fit together.
For our exercise, we started with the size of our dowel rods. We then found a drill bit big enough to drill a hole in the wooden plank that would fit the rods; and then found a object that would fit nicely into the rods.
Step 2: Gather the Materials
Step 3: Trace and Cut the Wooden Base
Choose a material that is straight and sturdy.
