Discover a new world on 64 squares! Chess is a game that emphasizes many developmental, social and problem-solving skills. Research studies have shown that chess can improve memory and imagination, and lead to higher verbal, reading and math scores.
If your child has never played before or has played a lot, this class is designed to accommodate participants of beginning and intermediate skill levels.
Beginners will be able to play a full game of chess by the end of the week, and students with basic knowledge will receive tailored instruction.
For students who appreciate the challenge and competition, the game provides, more intense instruction is available. Instruction is provided by Robert Dwyer.
A pretty-darn-good player in his own right, Mr. Rob possesses the unique ability to make students feel capable and proud of what they have accomplished on the board. Checkmate!
