Nolan's math teacher challenged his class to solve a Rubik's cube and thus began Nolan's new obsession, speedcubing. He is rarely seen these days without a cube of some sort in his hand. There are many different kinds of cubes, not just the iconic 3 x 3 (I am learning). We went to a speedcube competition a month ago and Nolan clocked in at 15.3 seconds for the 2 x 2 cube. But you need to clock in under 4 seconds to get to the finals!
