" Learn to solve a 3x3 Rubik's Cube"
I can teach you to solve a Rubik's cube from any given point in eight steps. It is a good activity for engaging learning, memory and hand eye coordination. We will go through the fundamentals of cubbing, of how to hold and manipulate the cube, how to read cube notation and of course how to solve the cube. As how long is needed to learn this skill is hard to guess (different from person to person) one hour is a good starting point. Personally I find cubbing wonderful way of keeping hands busy and refocusing the brain when stressed. It is not magic and you don't need to be a genius to learn. It takes just a bit of dedication and practice. For the lessons you will need to bring your own cube.
