Chess is fun and can be learned quickly and easily. Studies have found that chess helps improve test results
in reading, science, and math, and produces growth in critical cognitive skills. Beyond academia, chess
influences social behavior including self esteem, respect for others, patience, and good manners. And did we
mention: it’s FUN!!
