Mastercam partners with NASA HUNCH program

CNC Software, developers of Mastercam CAD/CAM software, is partnering with High Schools United with NASA to Create Hardware (HUNCH), an effort to bring high school students new educational experiences with NASA projects.

CNC Software will be providing licenses of Mastercam to select schools to use, as long as they are participating in the NASA HUNCH program. While there are about 150 schools participating in NASA HUNCH, Mastercam is specifically working with those schools focused on precision machining, the company said.

“CNC Software is proud to support HUNCH and its efforts to bring high school students new educational experiences with NASA projects,” Peter Mancini, education product owner for CNC Software, said in a statement. “This is a unique program. We are glad to be a part of students fabricating real-world products for NASA as they apply their science, technology, engineering, and mathematics skills, as well as learning to work in teams and think creatively.” For more, visit and
