GM Rogers, in his column for the Sun Herald today, talks about a chess in schools initiative in Castelemaine, Victoria. The grandmaster also mentions an Australian Council for Educational Research article with a subtitle, "Chess Generates Genius".
We have not been able to find that article online (it's possibly not available). But in our efforts, we discovered that the Castlemaine initiative actually has an accompanying blog called Chess-Squared. Their aim is to "supplement lessons plans being developed that explore mathematical concepts gained by learning and playing regular chess."
Chess-Squared has already even come to the attention of one Susan Polgar! We welcome Chess-Squared to the blogosphere and wish the program all the best.
