JENNINGS, Missouri (KMOV) — Tarron Nelson is an 11-year-old student at Northview Elementary School with a unique talent.

The 5th grader can complete a Rubik’s Cube in less than 2 minutes with a record time of 43 seconds.

“You don’t need to be smart to solve a Rubik’s Cube. All you need to know is the algorithms,” says Rubik’s Cube kid Tarron Nelson.
