60. Get and solve a 6X6 Rubik’s cube
Check out this collection. Today at school I asked for everyone that had a cube to put theirs on the table in class. There are 23 cubes there and I had 7 kids that told me that they left their cube at home.
This is a picture of me with Luke, one of my students. He was one of the first to be able to solve the cube and he has been a big fan since he started. I am trying to show him how to solve some of the bigger ones. There are some complicated steps with them that either take a long time to teach, or I don't completely know how to explain. So we aren't there quite yet.
Here it is solved. There have been some steps that took me awhile to get down. After messing around a little bit with it I was able to scramble it around and get it right. There are faster ways to get it solved than I did, but I did get it done. I'm guessing if I scramble it up it would take me about 30 minutes of uninterrupted time to solve.
After I solved it, first I took a picture, then I started mixing it around in different patterns.
2 minutes! This guy is flying.
26 goals done!
