CHESS - (R1250)
The game of chess is one of strategy, skill and concentration. In chess it is all about the ability to outsmart your opponent – it has nothing to do with age, race, physical strength or degrees – judging the proverbial ‘book by the cover’ will be your biggest mistake. Chess teaches children to believe and trust in their own ability; to take responsibility for what happens on the board and to gracefully accept a win or a loose. The sooner kids start playing the better! Andrew from Insight Chess Academy leads small groups of players and allows for plenty of instruction and matches.
DIGITANK - (R1150)
Digitank provides high quality technology education like computer programming and robotics at affordable prices. The most important benefit of our courses is that coding is best learned young: learning to code is like learning a second language. The earlier that children are exposed to fundamental topics like sequencing, loops, and conditionals, the more deeply they absorb these concepts. Digitank is most suitable for lower elementary children and coding/robotics beginners.
