Our fall schedule is now up and returning are our popular Minecraft Madness! course and our Chess Team. In addition, we’re pleased to offer a new Minecraft Madness! Club for kids who can’t get enough Minecraft.
- Tuesday, 4:30-5:30, starts September 15 (10 weeks): Chess Team
- Friday, 4:30-5:30, starts September 11 (4 weeks): Minecraft Madness! course and Club
Our Chess Team is open to all children, grades 2 to 8, who either want to learn how to play chess or want to improve their playing skills. Children new to chess will be placed in their own group until they are familiar and comfortable playing chess at which time they will then be incorporated into the rest of the team.
Team members will meet once per week via Zoom and will be given full access to our online chess program where we will incorporate lessons, puzzles, and playing opportunities with each other.
In order to participate in our Minecraft programs, your child will need to either own or purchase the Minecraft Java version of the program. Information on how to purchase and install the software can be found here.
In addition, parents will receive via email our Zoom meeting information and instructions on accessing our Minecraft server.
This fall, we’re offering two different Minecraft options – monthly regular course and Minecraft club. Students registered for either of the options will all connect via Zoom and play in our Minecraft server on Fridays, 4:30-5:30. The difference between the two programs is that members of the Club will continue to have full access to our server outside of class time so they can continue their projects and explorations.
