PS 98 students in Grades 2-3 receive chess instruction in the fall and students in Grades K-1 in the spring. Chess is a classic game of strategy, invented more than 1500 years ago in India. During chess instruction, while our children have lots of fun, they learn to observe carefully, increase focusing ability, analyze concretely, visualize next steps and think abstractly, which are major contributing factors to academic excellence.
STEAMchess offers free Lunchtime Chess, Grades K-3 Curriculum Chess and Tuesday after school programs: Chess Club and Endgame Chess along with Chess Tournaments and they are currently working on a STEAMchess Summer Camp.
