The Rubik's Quest Robot's Revenge 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.
In The Robot's Revenge, a factory of robots is on the rampage. Readers must use their knowledge of invention and robotics to save the day:
Buzzzz! A robot flies past your head. You arrive at Engleby’s Inventorium, where you’re working as an apprentice. You haven’t yet managed to meet the genius inventor Edison Engleby, so you turn up early one morning, hoping to catch him.
But what does the day have in store for you? Turn to page 9 to find out.
The Magic Cube was invented in 1974 by Hungarian architecture professor Erno Rubik.
After being reâ€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.
