Will Italia is a seventh-grader at Light of the World Academy, a charter school in Pinckney, and he’s one of the best Rubik’s Cube-solvers in the country (they’re called “cubers”). Earlier this spring, he qualified for the 2017 National Rubik’s Cube Championships in Ft. Wayne, Indiana.

Will and his classmates came to the State Capitol on May 3 for Charter Day at the Capitol – a celebration of the achievements and accomplishments of charter school students around the state.

One of the main events during Charter Day at the Capitol was a gathering in the Capitol Rotunda – and Will’s Rubik’s Cube skills were on full display.

Michigan Association of Public School Academies (MAPSA) President Dan Quisenberry introduced Will to the hundreds of people inside the Rotunda, and challenged him to try and solve a fully scrambled cube in less than 40 seconds.

State Rep. Lana Theis, R-Brighton, served as the celebrity cube-scrambler, and then the de-scrambling began.

Watch the video below to see if Will was able to solve the cube in less than 40 seconds.
