Cool Desk Idea for Summer Reading 2014 Science Theme. The Rubik's Cube (originally called "Magic Cube") was first sold in Hungary in 1977 and then sold internationally in 1980. The simple cube immediately became immensely popular all around the world.
Once you have mastered solving the cube, move on to exploring patterns like the 'Four Center Spots' pattern. The "Making Patterns with Rubik's Cube" #science project challenges fans of the puzzle to investigate the kinds of patterns that can be created from a solved cube. Fun hands-on science for #math enthusiasts, too! [Source: Science Buddies, http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-fair-projects/project_ideas/Math_p024.shtml?from=Pinterest] #STEM #scienceproject
