You CAN Do the Rubik's Cube
Students of all ages experience productive struggle while developing critical thinking, problem solving, and visualization skills when learning to solve the Rubik’s Cube.
Our Mission is to provide resources and support to schools and youth organizations to teach STEM/STEAM standards and 21st Century skills by using the Rubik’s Cube. As you integrate 21st Century Skills in your out-of-school time programs, exploration of the Rubik’s Cube naturally embeds skills such as focus, following directions, sequencing, and perseverance.
Invented by Professor Erno Rubik as a model of 3D geometry and design, the Rubik’s Cube’s foundation is in the classroom. In response to teachers' requests for affordable Rubik's Cube classroom resources and with a desire to give back and return the Rubik's Cube to its roots in education, Rubik's Brand Ltd. developed the You CAN Do The Rubik's Cube program.
Through You CAN Do the Rubik’s Cube, you can bring Rubik’s Cubes into your after school program at little or no cost to support a variety of mathematical content areas as well as the mathematical practice standards.
