Chess prepares you for life! Join us for Environmental Charter School Beginner’s Chess Class. Players are invited to experience chess with interactive lessons and hands-on instruction. Chess combines concentration, planning, and thinking ahead with playing and competing against an opponent. Each week, we will bring prepared lessons and exercises that strengthen each student’s knowledge of chess. After weeks of practice and stimulating chess games, the club will have a mini chess tournament with prizes for top players. Taught by The Queen’s Gambit Chess Institute, a Pittsburgh based non-profit organization dedicated to teaching chess and using the game to impact Pittsburgh.
