Chess Scholars is our fun-filled professional chess program for children in grades K-6. We work with students of all levels, including complete beginners. During each one-hour class, there is an interactive instructional period of 15-20 minutes, followed by guided practice. Students can also test for Chess Belts, patterned after martial arts belts. We normally run a tournament with prizes towards the end of the session. Our curriculum is well suited for the needs of young students. For example, we have a special point system designed to avoid discouraging young beginners.
Thursdays, 3:30 p.m.–4:30 p.m.
Let's Build It - Engineering
This class takes a hands-on approach to engineering, allowing students to directly engage with basic engineering concepts through a variety of fun and educational activities. Students will improve their problem solving, math, and physics skills – all while engaging in exciting building projects. Each trimester-long unit will focus on a specific area of engineering, like robots, circuits, and exciting machines. No previous experience is necessary, just a desire to learn and build. Each student will receive an award on the last day of the session, and have the opportunity to earn Energy Belts to demonstrate their learned skills!
Fridays, 3:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m.

In such a fun environment, students actually forgot they are learning, and are completely at ease. Fun fluency uses a teaching system that creates an immersion experience for students, while at the same time ensuring understanding.
