Help Our Rubik's Cube Club Get to a Competition!

My students need team shirts to wear to our upcoming Rubik's Cube competition, and 9 more cubes so that we have the required 25 cubes needed to compete.

My Students

Every Tuesday during lunch and after school, you can find about 10-15 students in my classroom learning to solve the Rubik's Cube. Many of them can now solve the Cube in under 5 minutes, and we are now ready to take our skills on the road!

My students all come from low-income households in an urban district.

They have had to overcome many obstacles throughout their educational career, and will have to overcome many more on their path towards college and careers after high school. For many, the Rubik's Cube Club has become a safe, fun, and engaging opportunity that allows them to really feel a part of something.

My Project

Through the help of generous donors earlier this year, our Rubik's Cube Club was able to get a new set of 4 by 4 cubes. So far, about half of our members can solve the 4 by 4 cube. However, our main focus over the last few weeks has been getting ready for a competition in March. With the help of generous donors this time around, we will be able to get t-shirts to wear as a team for the competition, and acquire the last 9 cubes we need to have a full set of 25 in order to participate.

The Rubik's Cube Club has served as the sole extracurricular activity for many students at my school who otherwise might not participate in any.

The students' excitement as we designed their t-shirts was contagious - most of them have never had the opportunity to have their name and number on a shirt. In fact, it was one of the students who had the idea to have the numbers on our shirts make up the first digits of Pi!
