My Project

I would love to host a Chess Club in my grade level for any kiddos that are inclined to learn how to play the game of Chess. According to studies, playing chess significantly improves a kid's visual memory, attention span, and spatial-reasoning ability. Chess is a great game for concentration and memory skills as well. Furthermore, I believe by giving kids the opportunity to learn to play chess, I will not only be teaching them a long-life skill but a great way to exercise their brain and improve their creativity as well.
