Most people know the Rubik's Cube as a puzzle that can be solved in just a few minutes. But what many people don't know is that the Rubik's Cube was originally designed to measure a person's intelligence. The puzzle consists of 24 squares that are all colored the same, and it is nearly impossible to solve without some help. In fact, it has been estimated that it takes someone between 10 and 20 minutes to solve the cube using random moves.
There is no definitive answer to the question of how smart children are when it comes to solving complex problems. However, a study published in The Journal of Experimental Child Psychology suggests that children as young as 4 years old can solve a Rubik's Cube. While this may not seem like a difficult task, the study showed that even very young children can learn how to solve the cube using step-by-step instructions.
