Course Details

From Chess, kids learn to think deeply about their decisions and how those choices might affect them or others. While playing Chess is usually against an opponent, learning to anticipate the moves of others can help kids build empathy to find out what they could neutralize another person's place. As one of the oldest games for over 1500 years in the world, Chess brings people together from different cultures, ages, and backgrounds over a standard bond and keenness for the sport. Scholastic Chess has been on the rise over the last decade around the world. Chess helps to develop creativity and develop problem-solving skills. It also helps young children to focus on task at hand and find solutions effectively. Chess helps to focus and sharpen minds, as Fischer said, "Chess demands total concentration." When playing Chess, our brains will challenge exercising logic, developing pattern recognition, making decisions both visually and analytically, and testing our memory.
