Building Mosacis using rubik's cubes

The new Rubik's Cube Mosaic Builder Guides and templates allow youth to combine fun with math, science, history and art! Now teachers and youth directors can teach algorithms, geometry, problem solving, spatial relations and more, while also teaching color theory, pixels, significant historical figures, patterns and national treasures!

We've teamed up with artist Pete Fecteau and created 2 step by step Mosaic Builder Guides which show you how to create mosaics using Rubik's Cubes. This is an enrichment activity for those who can solve the cube.

Four of the templates require only 36 cubes and can be created using 3 Rubik’s Cube Education kits. To create the other mosaics we lend out Mosaic Builder Sets.

To make a Rubik's Cube mosaic, you don't need to know how to solve the cube. The following lessons will provide all directions needed.

Mosaic Lesson 1: Making A Multi Colored Cross Mosaic Lesson 2: Adding Multi Colored Corners Mosaic Lesson 3: Pixel Resolution

Entries Due: Nov 30, 2016

Open to students in grades K-12 in the USA

The student’s teacher must submit a picture of the completed mosaic

Mosaics must be a student’s original design, created between March 1 - Nov 30, 2016, using Rubik’s Cube brand 3x3 cubes.

Voting will be done on the You CAN Do the Rubik’s Cube Facebook page, Dec 5, 2016 - Jan 5, 2017

Prizes for the winning students and their teachers will be awarded in three categories: 50 cubes or less, 51-100 cubes, 101-225 cubes. See official rules for complete details.
