Chess as part of education improves IQ and Grades

International Master Larry Evans and staff teach chess in 33 schools throughout San Diego County. Their program (once featured on The Tonight Show) has produced national champions at every scholastic level. Children come from all over to study at their camps in California and Hong Kong.
Beginners are also welcome. Chess is a great workout for mathematical muscles. It’s problem-solving. Students learn to think ahead, evaluate multiple alternatives and anticipate consequences. They improve spatial reasoning, visual memory and attention span while learning good judgment, reasoning power and self-confidence.
The program, dubbed "The Evans Method" by the United States Chess Federation, includes instruction, formal and casual play and a team event on a giant, Harry Potter like chess set. Students receive prizes at the end of each class to reward participation and trophies at the end of each session.
