Chess is a fun, engaging game that kids love to play! People with skills in chess are ready to conquer complex problems in the personal lives and futures careers. Learning chess improves your ability to think rationally, helps develop patience and thoughtfulness, increases cognitive skills, and much more.
In our program, we’ve seen firsthand students work hard, concentrate, and commit to develop innovative strategies in the game while developing a competitive yet sportsmanlike spirit. This all happens while they have a great time having fun in the class.
Every game of chess is a puzzle. Playing the game requires students to exercise their problem solving abilities on-the-fly, be patient, and think creatively.
Chess has been studied to be correlated with higher academic achievement, particularly in mathematics and other STEM fields.
Practicing chess forces kids to control their impulses, plan ahead, delay gratification, and be responsible for their actions.
Every move has a consequence, and considering how your opponent will react to every move builds up your strategic thinking abilities.
