Subject: Google+ On-Air Hangout with Erno Rubik 7/18
Date: Sun, 14 Jul 2013 00:02:46 -0000

Just wanted to share this event with the group – it seems Google is
commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Cube: (whatever they think
"Beyond the Cube" means, it likely does not involve enough hyperbolic
and non-Euclidean geometry in higher dimensions ; )

Hey STEM & Rubik’s Cube enthusiasts,

You’re receiving this email because I believe you might be interested in
this project.

Please accept my apologies if you don’t.

We’re excited to share with you the first step in the launch of
Beyond Rubik’s Cube project. Tomorrow, July 13 at 10am ET, we will
be debuting the G+ Page for +BeyondRubiksCube
<> with a mysterious
teaser <http://goto/ernoteaservideo> video.


In 2014, the Rubik’s Cube will turn 40 and Erno Rubik, the founder of
the Rubik Cube will launch his first official exhibition called "Beyond
the Cube" to celebrating its impact on STEAM. The exhibition will
premiere in New York at the Liberty Science Center and will then tour
Science museums around the world for 7 years. This exhibition aims to
inspire a new generation of problem solvers and creative thinkers to
pursue a career in STEAM. Google has decided the invest in this project
as the goals align closely to our passions. Creative Lab has been
working closely with the Google+ team to help craft the narrative and
develop creatives for this project.


We’re excited to share with you the first step in the launch of
Beyond Rubik’s Cube project, ramping up until the exhibition
