Creamy is an 11-piece interlocking puzzle by Warren Sunada-Wong ’20 made using SketchUp software and modeled after his pet guinea pig “Creamy.” He designed it during the 2018 3D Printing June Term course taught by science faculty Drew Kesler and Dan Erlandson. The design was inspired by interlocking burr puzzles introduced during the course. Printing the puzzle with the 3D printer took almost 24 hours. Warren would like to thank Mr. Kesler for helping him create this project.
3D Printing & Technical Drawing is one of many June Term intensive learning courses offered to Newark Academy students in grades 9-11 during the two weeks following Memorial Day. A June Term course does more than simply inform students; it involves them from start to finish. Through hands-on experiences, students grapple with challenging ideas, make connections between concepts and reality, make mistakes, and learn from them. Many courses involve field trips and guest speakers. All June Term courses result in a distinctive final product or project, allowing students to synthesize what they have learned and to put it into practice.
