It started with a little curiosity mixed in with a desired to do something ambitious. 

For Year 2 student, Abhi M., this was just the winning combination to unlock the puzzles of the Rubik's cube. 

"My son started working towards solving the Rubik’s cube a few months ago by reading the guides on his own and trying to figure out the multiple combinations and their solutions," said Sonia M.

"After solving the 3x3 Cube for the first time, he was excited for a moment but realized there are further goals to achieve. He started solving the cube faster and faster and brought the time down to consistently around 2 minutes. Then he started creating interesting patterns on the cube and solving them. At this time he has already mastered the 3x3 and the 2x2, working towards a bigger goal of solving the 4x4, 5x5, Mirror cube, etc. and mastering them."

According to Abhi's mom, this BISC Lincoln Park student's journey started curiosity though developed into a passion, which also includes chess, music and other activities.

Think you can solve the Rubik's cube in just about two minutes? See how Abhi twists and turns the puzzle to do something very successful outside the classroom!
