Aerospace engineering student Joshua Cherian has been looking forward to April 11 for weeks. It’s not a milestone birthday for Cherian, but the day the inventor of the Rubik’s Cube – Ernő Rubik – will make a rare public appearance at Georgia Tech.

Rubik, an architect and designer who lives in Budapest, will give a public lecture on a range of topics including design and architecture, the role of curiosity in the human condition, and his perspective on more than four decades of the Rubik’s Cube.

This talk is sponsored by the College of Science, the School of Mathematics, and the Gathering 4 Gardner Foundation.

The event is a Frontiers in Science Lecture, held Wednesday, April 11, from 7 to 8 p.m. in room 152 of the Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons. More information is available on the campus calendar.
