Rubik’s Cube Club

Rubik’s Cubes have been proven to increase spatial intelligence and cognitive development in students. ELP Teacher, Robin Loes, has worked to incorporate them into her lesson plans to extend student achievement in this area. After a number of students showed an active interest in continuing to learn beyond the lesson plan, she established a club at Kingsley Elementary where students work together to create mosaics using 250 cubes. More than 100 students participate in the club monthly, and it has been so successful that two other schools have started one of their own, borrowing the Rubik’s Cubes purchased through this grant. The students have even showcased their work at the Cedar Valley STEM Festival and Advanced Programming Showcase!
