To aid and improve the development of logical and strategic thinking skills in Alberta's youth.
Chess is a game of perfect information, nothing happens due to luck or random chance. The player is presented with all the information they need to make a decision. Every move the player must process the information they are given in a logical manner and come up with the most strategic solution to the problem. Often times this requires planning many moves in advance.
A single game of chess is comparable to solving dozens or even hundreds of logical problems. Repeated training of the brain in solving logical problems aids students in their real life problem-solving and planning skills. Not only does chess have these educational benefits, it is also a fun and competitive game which keeps students engaged and eager to learn.
COMMANDO CHESS CAMPS during Public Schools Teachers' Convention Thursday and Friday, February 27 and 28 at Greenfield Hall, 3803 114 Street, Edmonton. These camps combine chess learning and playing with fitness activities including a Friday afternoon Commando Chess Tournament where between each game of chess, participants perform a fitness challenge involving running, jumping and other physical activites - awards for both chess scores and fitness tests, plus an overall Commando Award for the participant getting the highest score in both disciplines!
