The Taco Bell Discovery Science Center turns 10 Saturday, December 20. To celebrate the anniversary, the Center will host a bash from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with free cake, activities and a record-breaking competition - at least they hope it will be.
The Center, known for its giant cube structure, is inviting the public to join in on an attempt at a new Guinness Book world record - the most people solving the Rubik's Cube at one time.
"The current record is 75 people," said Julie Smith, public relations manager at the Center. Register at www.discoverycube.org to join the competition and also get $1 off admission to the Center by showing your Rubik's Cube.
One of the world's top competitive Rubik's Cube solvers, Tyson Mao, will demonstrate how to solve the puzzle at 11 a.m. before the big competition, which will take place at 1 p.m.
Other activities will include logic games, memory puzzles and presentations about brain science by University of California, Irvine, neuroscientists.
Admission price includes special exhibitions, "The Science of Gingerbread" and "Masters of the Night: The True Story of Bats."
