For the last few years, I have been fortunate enough to sponsor a great group of kids in Rubik’s Cube Club. I use the You Can Do The Cube guides to teach the kids how to solve the cube. You can get them free from their site – youcandothecube.com. Once the students learn how to solve the traditional 3 x 3 cube, they can move on to advanced cubes. Amazon has some great designs and is usually where I purchase mine.
Twice a year, You Can Do The Cube, sponsor a mosaic building challenge in which students are encouraged to build pictures (mosaics) out of Rubik’s Cubes. You can even check giant sets out for free from their site, however shipping is really high.
The students have a lot of fun planning their designs. They can use graph paper or the computer to grid out what their picture will look like. A few of the ones that they designed are below.
