A team of fifth and sixth graders from Higley Unified School District’s Chaparral Elementary School participated March 28 in the Regional Rubik’s Cube Competition at the ASU SciTech Festival West in Glendale.
Gabe Young, Connor Goodwin, LeAnn Nguyen, Jennifer Molina, Gavin Haase, Owen Alzubi, David Lombardi, and Zane Al-Qattan represented Chaparral Elementary School at a recent Rubik’s Cube competition.
The team of eight students had to solve 25 cubes as fast as they could. Their final time was 4 minutes and 22 seconds, placing them seventh in the state.
The team was led by teacher Tracy Carlucci, who formed the team last fall.
