Week 3: Brainstorm


(Tanagram by

Week 3 in Intro to Fabrication focuses on Measurements & Lasercutting. Working with Jiwon in Pcomp for midterms led me to thinking about possible puzzle ideas for my nephews ❤

Both are rapidly learning the world around them. I started researching possible ideas, and knew i wanted it to be more of a Montessori/educational style puzzle connecting their home/ their parents’ love of nature? Went down a rabbit hole of Tangram, wooden blocks, and educational tools ❤
