Event Description:

?INVOLVE ME AND I?LL LEARN.? ? B Franklin. As school academics in a game, playing chess and being smart are interconnected. There’s a strong correlation between chess and academic achievement including math, spatial analysis and non-verbal reasoning ability. Joining in this Sherlock-Holmes-world of tactics and strategies, kids get trained in life-skills goal-setting: checkmate! What?s more, chess provides a mental armor ? ?commander? (leader) self-image ? whereby kids can draw upon and develop a well-rounded discipline, amidst a friendly social setting where art meets science and math with fun. Chess folder kit included.
