How to Solve Any Problem
This exciting masterclass coming from the new partnership between Tomorrow's Achievers and Rubik is all about talking to yourself (well some of the masterclass is about talking to yourself!). Most of today is about involving your mind, both unconsciously and consciously, in solving some very tricky problems, using Rubik's Cube as an example. You will explore the science of problem solving and the involvement of artists in problem solving, mathematics, science and creative thinking. We will be thinking about big problems, little problems, funny problems and sometimes very urgent problems that need solving NOW! What problem do you think needs solving now? Talk to yourself and think about this question and when we meet for the Masterclass we can all listen to each other's ideas and solve every single problem there is, including the Rubik's Cube.
