Event Description:

‘NEGOTIATION IS THE GAME OF LIFE.’ –‘ Newsweek. 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’ (TEAM 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. Instructor’s Mission Statement: Strategies now, leader tomorrow. No class on May 19
