WHY IS CHESS GOOD FOR KIDS IN AFTER SCHOOL, SUMMER CAMPS, COMMUNITIES CENTERS AND RECREATION CENTERS?
Chess is STEM!
Can chess increase math scores?
Maybe, But how?
Let’s look at the similarities between the two:
Chess is a game that requires problem solving, math requires problem solving.
Chess and math require spatial thinking.
Can chess improves spatial thinking?
Maybe, many fields depend on spatial thinking, from structural geologists to engineers.
So how can chess help? well, chess is very spatially demanding. Playing chess requires keeping track of the locations and potential locations of a large number of pieces.
CHESS: Our chess program concentrate on critical thinking and creative thinking; the ability to understand a problem, create a logical argument and find an answer. Creative thinking involves focusing on ideas and looking for many answers instead of just one. We believe in a hands on approach toward learning; therefore, our motto is that children can learn through play. We look forward to working with your children in a wonderful “mind” centered after school or summer activity.
