The two-day International Rubik’s event organized by Green Valley Educational Institute which included participants from across the US, UK, Malaysia, and other states of India, concluded on Sunday, 6 November 2022.
The Additional Deputy Commissioner Srinagar, Mr. Syed Haneef Balki graced the concluding ceremony.
Mohammad Beigh, one of the participants and a Green Valley student said, “I enjoy playing the Rubik’s cube, but I seriously started practicing from the past few months. I do it all by myself with the use of the internet.”
It was the first-ever official WCA competition in Srinagar. Around 90 competitors competed in The Kashmir Cube Open 2022. Only 63 participants made it to the second round. There were 6 events in the Cube Competition: 3x3x3 Cube, 2x2x2 Cube, 4x4x4 Cube, 3x3x3 Blindfolded, 3x3x3 One-Handed, and the Pyraminx.
The primary purpose of organizing the event was to boost the students’ critical and analytical thinking. Apart from academic ventures, it is essential for the holistic development of our future generation.
