Competition, when conducted positively, is a great way to encourage, motivate, and deepen a child’s interest to learn and get better.

We’ve developed competition and development teams that help encourage students’ inquisitiveness through research and hands-on learning. Importantly, being part of a team teaches kids how to work both independently and cooperatively.

Currently, we offer teams in  Chess, Coding, and Robotics.

Chess Teams

We have 2 types of chess teams: Chess Competition and Chess Development.

The Chess Competition Team is offered all year and is for kids who know the basics of chess. Children in this team work on improving their chess knowledge and skills as well as starting or improving their USCF ratings through participation in rated tournaments and quads.

The Development Team is for students who are new or just beginning in chess. This program is offered all year and its focus is to provide a solid foundation in chess fundamentals. Kids who finish this program will have met the prerequisite (mandatory training session) for the Chess Competition Team.

Code Team

The Code Team is for kids who are seriously interested in programming/coding. In this program, which is offered all year, members learn the basic and advance fundamentals of coding and work in small groups to code an app for the Android.

Robotics Teams

Our Robotics Teams is divided into 2 types: FLL Competition and Development.

The FLL Competition team is offered during the competition season in the fall. Thereafter, we offer the Development team which is focused on a deep dive into the robotics missions from the fall competition season.
