Second Graders Become Rubik's Cube Masters

The Youth Advisory Council awarded the classroom enough funds to purchase a Rubik's Cube for each student.

Throughout the year, students have been working and researching how to solve the addictive and challenging puzzle game. So far, at least  11 students have it figured out and can adjust the color sides correctly in little time.

A quick trial run in the classroom and a few students had the puzzle solved in less than 2 minutes.

"We just started working it one step at a time. Mr. Barnes would show us a step about two or three times and then we would try it ourselves," said Anna Dunkelberger.

"Then we would teach each other and help each other," said Gabi Markle. "I love doing it. It's a lot of fun to see how fast I can do  it now."

Brody Reichard said he loves trying to solve the puzzle. "Any time is a good time for the Rubik's Cube," he said.
