Students constructing a mosaic of 225 Rubik’s Cubes
A bit more of a challenge, assembling over 2100 Rubik’s cubes for the Oliver Stone movie premier of Snowden. Edward Snowden used the cube to smuggle his data through security checkpoints.
We’ve used Rubik’s Cubes in math class to learn about mathematical concepts, spatial relationships, and logical problem solving skills. On average, we’ve had 85% of students solve the cube in under 5 minutes. The record in class is 34 seconds!
