I’m a mentor with the cu1to1 mentoring program (http://www.cu1to1.org). I brought my 10th grade mentee to the fablab to make jigsaw puzzles that I used to teach first grade cub scouts their “cub scout promise”. Here’s a link to the youtube video showing the puzzle being made in the laser cutter: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QB0ZBCARGmo My mentee did the design on the computer, we made 10 of the puzzles. I’ve attached a picture of the scouts and parents putting the puzzle together. I sent the same picture and video to the cu1to1 mentoring program. My hope here is to build bridges between facilities like the fablab and programs like the cu1to1 mentoring program.
