Roving ChessNuts News & Notices
The daily Three-Puzzle feature is below these updates
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.
Roving ChessNuts has a growing number of opportunities to teach chess or supervise children with chess games. Supervisors must be good chess players and able to supervise younger children as they learn legal moves and how to checkmate. Perfect well-paid parttime work for retired teachers and university students having noon hours and after school availability or weekday evenings.
