EUGENE, Ore. - Students of all ages from all over the state of Oregon gathered at North Eugene High School on Saturday, February 24, for the newly launched Rubik's Cube Competition.

The students competed both in six different teams as well as individual events. In the team events a group of 6-10 students competed for the fastest time to solve 25 cubes, and in the individual events it was a speed competition with one cube.

Cody Rosenburg, the co-organizer of the event and North Eugene math teacher, said he's been using Rubik's Cubes for the last three years to teach geometry students. He said it not only teaches them about algorithmic patterns, but also patience, perseverance, and how to follow complex instructions.

"It's helped me with my focus and the advantage of learning something new and going for it," said Audrey Parker, a competing student from Gilham Elementary.
