Saunooke Designs Puzzle Table
Thursday, April 17, 2014
Chelsea Saunooke, a senior at Swain High School, designed this puzzle table for her Advanced Digital Engineering project. Chelsea chose to do a puzzle because she is planning a career in Early Childhood Development. By doing research, she found that puzzles help children to be creative, use fine motor skills, and cognitive skills. It also helps boost their self-esteem. She chose the alphabet and numbers since the age group she wants to work with will be learning these skills.
Chelsea hopes to start her own daycare one day and plans to keep the table for use. The table will go to Bright Adventures Pre-K for a one week evaluation. Chelsea acquired her skills to complete this project by taking Carpentry and Digital Engineering courses at Swain High.
