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.
The Roving ChessNuts, founded
in 2001, teaches chess in schools,
community halls, and its own training facilities in Edmonton and other Alberta communities.
The ChessNuts also organize chess tournaments and events .
The Roving ChessNuts are
involved with the national
