The Tournament will consist of teams of eight students in grades K-12 plus a teacher/coach, divided into 3 divisions as follows:
Div 1 - Elementary Grades K-5;
Div 2 - Middle School Grades 6-8;
Div 3 - High School Grades 9-12.
The teams will be competing to collectively solve 25 Rubik's Cubes.
All teams will compete in a Preliminary Tournament to be held on Thursday, April 26, 2012. The top six teams in each division will advance to the Grand Final to be held on Saturday, April 28, 2012, as part of the USA Science & Engineering Festival Expo. The Final will be followed by the Awards Ceremony.
