Solving Permutation Puzzles with the aid of a computer

Puzzles are great! But sometimes they get the better of us. Instead of yielding a solution they resist our best analysis. No longer!

In this workshop you will be able to program your computer to aid you in solving permutation puzzles like Rubik's cube, Megaminx or the Brainbow. Even if you never have solved a cube before you should come. We will teach you the tricks of the trade, teach the computer how to aid you and teach the two of you how to solve any permutation puzzle.
