X2251: How to Solve a Rubik's Cube in Spark! Spring 2009 (Mar. 07, 2009)
In this class, I will teach you the beginner's solution to the Rubik's Cube. If there's time, I will introduce more advanced mechanical puzzles of various shapes and levels (including a 4-Dimensional Rubik's Cube). Also if there's time, I will introduce the advanced solution to the Rubik's Cube (the speedcuber's method).

X2253: So I can solve a Rubik's Cube, now what?! in Spark! Spring 2009 (Mar. 07, 2009)
This is a class intended for people who can solve a Rubik's Cube and want to move on to more advanced puzzles. I will teach you how to solve the 4x4, 5x5, ..., nxn cubes, as well as the Megaminx and Square-1. I will also go over the speedcuber's method for solving a normal Rubik's Cube. In addition, I will teach you how you would go about solving the Cube blindfolded. If there's time, I'll try and go over the 4-Dimensional and 5-Dimensional analogs of a Rubik's Cube as well.

H1736: How to solve a Rubik's Cube in Splash! 2008 (Nov. 22 - 23, 2008)
This section will show how to solve a Rubik's cube. It will include the history of the cube, several different methods used to solve the cube, how to modify the cube, and it will even include solutions to other mechanical puzzles, such as the 4x4x4 cube, the 5x5x5 cube, and Square 1. It will even introduce a computer program that has a Rubik's cube in the 4th dimension!

H1737: How to solve a Rubik's Cube in Splash! 2008 (Nov. 22 - 23, 2008)
