Chess is an exercise of infinite possibilities for the mind; one which develops mental abilities used throughout life: concentration, critical thinking, pattern recognition, strategic planning, creativity, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation, to name a few. Chess is also a highly effective tool for teaching problem-solving and abstract reasoning.
Learning how to solve a problem is actually more important than learning the solution to any particular problem. Through chess, we learn how to analyze a situation by focusing on important factors and by eliminating distractions. To that end, the Planetarium Science Center (PSC) is launching this new program that aims at developing the mental capacity and analytical skills of children.
