Chess Junior at the Classroom

Chess Junior has been used ‒ very successfully ‒ as a teaching tool to encourage talented youngsters in schools for highly gifted pupils and primary schools since 2015.


At the beginning, children do not know exactly which piece has to be moved and which target should be pursued. This could cause them to lose interest in the game of chess.  

Instead, the Chess Junior mini-games are simplified chess situations with short playtimes. While playing, both players quickly learn one step at a time.
