The Rubik's Cube has the power to change students' attitudes towards science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Through hands-on learning experiences with the Cube, students witness how STEM and art intersect to create STEAM. Dan Van der Vieren seeks to enrich traditional math education and curricula through innovative strategies that challenge the status quo. In his first four years of secondary teaching, he has experienced public, charter, rural, urban and alternative school settings. Dan’s passion for problem solving has led him to experiment with a variety of instructional techniques, including implementing the Rubik’s Cube into his math classroom. The well-known puzzle served as the topic of both his undergraduate thesis through Regis University and master’s capstone project through the University of Colorado Denver. Dan is a Noyce Scholar, a YCDTRC Ambassador and an academic entrepreneur. He is the author of two TED-Ed animated videos and has written three articles in UKEd Magazine about classroom management, STE(A)M education and student engagement using the Rubik’s Cube. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
