This class is for kids who already have some cubing experience and can solve a 3x3x3 Rubik's cube in just a few minutes. Students will either focus on improving their 3x3x3 skills or learning a new puzzle. On the last day of the camp, we will host a small, unofficial competition to see how fast students have gotten. We will give each student a 3x3 Rubik's Cube, specifically a Moyu RS3M 2020 for the class, though students are free to bring their own cube(s). The class will be from 1:30 - 3:30 pm. We will also be hosting an extra cubing session for all students from 3:30 - 5:00PM right after the class is over. This will allow students to get help from teachers without being forced to follow a curriculum, as the cubing session will not have lessons.
