Milford students design, build cribbage boards for nursing homes

This fall, the Milford High School engineering program has designed and built over 20 cribbage boards for Milford’s nursing home communities.

Inspired by a student suggestion, this project was embraced by the classes and their teachers at the Milford Applied Technology Center. Utilizing resources at Milford High School such as parametric modeling software, MasterCAM programming, and a CNC router for manufacturing, students spent approximately two weeks in the design, build and assembly process. The boards were then brought to Manchester Community College for the laser engraving of a personalized design onto the face of the boards and then finished with a stain.

Once completed, students delivered the boards to Ledgewood Bay and The Elm’s Center and even had a chance to test them out with local residents when they stopped in at Crestwood Center. Nice work Milford High engineering students!
