LoveReading View on Mission Invent

The Rubik's Quest series allows children to achieve a sense of 'creating your own adventure story' using knowledge of machines and engineering to decide how the exciting adventure unfolds.  Complete the mission and the reader will have become an engineering whizz.

The Rubik's Quest series Mission Invent is part of a series of four exciting books. Each one takes the reader on an engaging adventure into the science and maths behind the Rubik's Cube which in 2014 celebrates its 40th birthday. Readers must use their problem-solving skills in a twisting-turning world of toys and puzzles.

"Since its global launch in 1980 the Rubik’s Cube has cemented itself firmly as a retro icon, now it really is a glowing example of cool."

Mission Invent Synopsis

You love being an apprentice designer at Toy Towers, where they make the world's most amazing toys. You arrive one morning to find My Jollypops' assistant waiting for you. She tells you that Mr Jollypops wants to see you urgently - all will be explained when you get there!

The Magic Cube was invented in 1974 by Hungarian architecture professor Erno Rubik.
After being re‐launched in 1980 as the Rubik's Cube, it sold an estimated 350 million
around the world. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Rubik cube, there is a special exhibition of the toy puzzle. Titled Beyond Rubik's Cube, it explores the humble beginnings of the cube, showing its first prototypes made out of wood and rubber bands. 

The exhibition will travel to the UK and there are a range of books released set to challenge and engage young minds.
