STUDENT SPOTLIGHT: Oliver has surprised us this year by putting in an enormous amount of his free time teaching himself the Rubik’s (and other) cubes. Today, he is competing at the Daytona, Florida ERAU Speedcubing competition. For his first event, Oliver will compete in the 2x2x2, the 3x3x3 and the Pyraminx categories. This particular event is sponsored by Cubicle.us and is one of many cubing competitions around the US. Regardless of the result, this will be such a cool experience for him.
Oliver’s first solo-solve with the 3x3x3, in the Gulf of Mexico, near Key West.
The day Oliver got caught cubing while driving. This resulted in immediate (temporary) firing of driving duties, a long lecture and extra chores.
As is customary in our Travel-school, we make cardboard versions of all sorts of things. On this day, Oliver made a set of cardboard cubes in various sizes (5x5x5, 4x4x4, 3x3x3, 2x2x2, 1x1x1)…
Aqua-blue ocean was no match for his attention, when there were algorithms to memorize.
Oli solved the 12-sided Megaminx for the first time somewhere between Ft. Lauderdale and Jupiter, FL.
Our collection so far, because. Cubes.
