You CAN do the Rubik’s cube Tournament is taking place at the USA Science and Engineering Festival.Have you signed up yet?
43 quintillion different combinations…
I don’t believe I have actually ever solved a Rubik’s cube, so after finding out that we are going to have a Rubik’s cube competition at the USA Science and Engineering Festival I went out and bought one…for research purposes of course. After all, I am a scientist and my curiosity got the better of me as this website claims that I CAN learn how to solve a Rubik’s cube. Working with a ‘7 steps solution guide of on how to solve the cube ‘ so far it seems that the key to solving a Rubik’s cube is part muscle memory and part pattern recognition. I have only been able to solve one side so far…but I’ll keep the blog posted periodically on my progress. Sign up a K-12 student here for the competition. There is plenty of time to learn how to solve the cube! Check out some back ground info on Rubik’s cubes below.
In the process of learning how to solve a Rubik’s cube I discovered the sport of ”speedcubing”. World Record holders can solve the puzzle in less than 10 seconds! That is pretty amazing! Better get back to practicing.
