This math and STEM learning aid is a unique educational tool which has been endorsed by PhDs from both Harvard and MIT. The product is debuting at the 2014 New York Toy Fair, and it is made in the USA by a Michigan-based printer. The learning tool is the result of a collaboration involving educators, engineers, and chess champions.
Yamie Chess invites children to explore the classic problem solving experience of playing chess--while also learning about a wide scope of math and science ideas. It's an engaging and interactive concept. I remember enjoying chess as a grade school student, and I can only imagine how much more fun it would have been in an even more lively format like this.
