Puzzle Cube Reflection

During this project, I glued wooden pieces together to form a 2.25x2.25 inch puzzle cube. The cube has 5 unique pieces that fit together. The total amount of small cubes used was 27. I later used a laser engraver to engrave inspirational quotes on the puzzle cube for each of the six sides. I used autodesk inventor to model each part and then I put the together. I made a document set with each part dimensioned. I collected results from people and observed that STEM students to better on this puzzle cube. A graph can be seen below.

The separate time of each individual can be found below.



I made a video about me finding parts of the cube and putting them together. It can be found below.
