SD Middle School Student Solves Rubik Cube In Average Of 44.9 Seconds

In the After School Rubik’s Cube Workshop at Stephen Decatur Middle School, students were challenged to understand and apply various methods of solving the Rubik’s cube.  Students studied and practiced different algorithms necessary to complete each side of the cube, then they focused on mastering the challenge. On March 1, 18 students competed in the final round of the tournament. The overall winner, Owen Dennis, solved three Rubik’s Cubes with an average of 44.9 seconds. Above, from left, are Dennis teacher Trevor Hill and second-place finisher Deep Patel.
