# Colossally Cool Cube

Long before Nintendo Switch, people had Rubik’s Cubes for handheld gaming. It’s a simple puzzle: you spin the pieces around until each side is all its own color. “Speedcubers” can even solve a Rubik’s Cube using 1 hand in less than 7 seconds! But one Rubik’s Cube has gotten completely out of hand. Tony Fisher built this 6-foot 7-inch tall toy using cardboard boxes, a lot of math, and of course, duct tape. We bet it’ll take more than a few seconds to unscramble this preposterous puzzle!

Wee ones: Draw a square, then split it up into 9 smaller shapes! (Bonus: Can you make those smaller shapes squares, too?)

Little kids: If there are 4 blue and 5 green squares on the top of the cube, how many squares is that? Bonus: How many green squares would need to switch to blue for there to be more blue than green squares?

Big kids: How much taller is the 6-foot 7-inch cube than you? Bonus: If 3 of the smaller cubes add up to 6 feet 7 inches, about how tall is each of those cubes?
