The classic Rubik’s Cube from the ’80s has been back for a while but it recently has been growing amongst many teens and tweens.

I personally have been into solving Rubik’s Cubes for almost 3 years. On average I can solve it in about 10-12 seconds. I got introduced to it by my friend, back in 2014.
I was recently on the news for the second time talking about cubing competitions! They happen about 3-4 times in Alberta a year and we have 140-220 people show up and compete! The last competition I went to I got a 13.66 3×3 average.
I think that the Rubik’s Cube is a great way to pass time as well as increase memorization and even increase your strategy skills. I recommend everyone to at least try to learn one at some time!
Hi! I’m James, a 15-year-old teen from Alberta.
My favourite pastimes are to do gymnastics and tricking, and I love to solve puzzles like the famous Rubik’s Cube!
My favourite places to go are trampoline parks as well as to movies!
