Torrey Hills students took part in the Rubiks cube competition held March 15 at Cal State San Marcos. This was part of the Super STEM Saturday which officially kicked off the weeklong San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering. This Festival of Science is billed as “the largest celebration of innovation and Science education in Southern California.”
The students, from grades 2 -6, worked in teams of eight and competed to solve a total of 25 cubes in a matter of minutes. They also competed in a solo event where each student was timed to solve one cube. Sixth grader Shreyank Kadadi placed first in the solo event. Students have been practicing every week for the past two months and they were mentored by the Cubing Club of Mira Mesa High School.
