April 2015

This March ushered in the yearly tradition at ASU West of sponsoring a Rubik’s Cube competition for elementary and high school aged students. The world renowned toy which became a household name has an interesting history. It was originally developed by a Hungarian Sculptor and professor in 1974. He intended it as a demonstration of three-D geometry, but by the 1980’s it became a best-selling toy and vexed people world-wide as they twisted and turned the cube.

On March 28th, ten of Moon Valley's students traveled to ASU West to participate in the competition.‚Äč The eight students and two alternates competed to complete 25 scrambled cubes in the shortest time.  Moon Valley's team took 3rd place in the Division 3 competition with a time of 5 minutes and 26 seconds. This was our team's best time so far this year.  Two students, Joey Welch and Ariana Gonzalez, also competed in the solo competition.  Both completed the Rubik's cube in about 60 seconds.  Great job students!
