Project Description

The tools and preparation that goes into making chess pieces.


Content: The top 3 things I learned from this showcase were:

  • How to program on the CNC
  • How to run a program on the CNC
  • Developing a code for a CNC machine

Culture: This project relates or connects to my family, background, peers, community or my own personal interests in these ways:

Our family supports and encourages our interest in engineering.


Metacognition: In reflection, one thing that I would have done differently during my journey with this showcase is:

The hardest part of the project was the coding piece.  We needed more time to research and learn more about coding.

Social/Emotional: One thing I am most proud of by completing this showcase is:

The amount of work and effort put into making the pieces was much more than we expected.
