The first Memory Madness took place on Thursday, October 8th, 2020 from 7 pm until 8 pm. This virtual event was free, aimed at adults and teens aged 18 and up, and was given by the professional speedcuber Sydney Weaver.
On this virtual event, the invited speaker explained the different types of memory: short term memory, long term memory, muscle memory and brute force memory. Sydney Weaver then shared several techniques to improve our abilities to memorize lists of words and numbers. The speaker stated that these memory techniques can also be used when you want to learn how to solve the Rubik’s Cube blindfolded.
