8th Grade Technology CNC Machining

The 8th grade Technology students are learning about Manufacturing Technologies.  Students used a CAD (Computer Aided Design) program to draw out the maze design for the Labyrinth marble maze project they are each creating.  From there, they took the file and converted it to a G-Code file in order for the CNC (Computer Numeric Control) router to recognize it.  In the pictures shown, students are looking on as the CNC router cuts out the design they have created in the pine wood game board.  CNC machines are used heavily out in industry from automobile manufacturing to computer and electronic manufacturing.
