“Chess includes game, art and science. The person who owns the features of a sportsman, actor and scientist is unbeatable.” - Grandmaster T.Petrosyan

The Robotics Society of Kenya (RSK) would like to congratulate Kicd Kenya for establishing a chess club at the ongoing Kenya School Music and Drama Festivals 2023, which is being held at Shimo La Tewa School.

The Kenya School Music and Drama Festivals is a program under the Ministry of Education that nurtures artistic talents in music and drama. The festival is a great opportunity for students to showcase their talents and to learn from each other.

The RSK believes that the establishment of a chess club at the festival is a positive step. Chess is a game that can help students develop critical thinking skills, problem-solving skills, and strategic thinking skills. These are all important skills that can be applied to other areas of life.

The RSK would like to encourage Kicd Kenya to continue to support Chess Kenya and other educational activities. We believe that these activities can help to enrich the lives of students and to prepare them for success in the future.

Several studies indicate a positive correlation between being introduced to chess in childhood and performing better in subjects like math and science, as well as showing an enhanced capacity for problem-solving, memory and language skills, all of which are valuable, and increasingly rare, assets in the job market. In one study, conducted in primary schools in Aarhus, Denmark, in 2013, weekly math lessons were replaced with chess-inspired lessons. The students actually ended up performing better in math.

Chess and robotics are two seemingly disparate subjects, but they actually have a lot in common. Both require strategic thinking, problem-solving skills, and creativity. In addition, both can help children develop important life skills such as perseverance, resilience, and teamwork.

If you are looking for a way to help your child develop important life skills, consider combining chess and robotics education. These two activities can help your child learn how to think strategically, solve problems, be creative, work together, focus, and concentrate. They can also help your child build self-confidence and self-esteem.

Robotics and AI can be used to develop more efficient and cleaner forms of energy production and transportation. For example, robots can be used to build and maintain solar and wind farms, and AI can be used to optimize the operation of these facilities. Robots can also be used to develop more fuel-efficient vehicles and to improve the efficiency of industrial processes.

The Robotics Society of Kenya (RSK) is a non-profit organization that aims to promote the development of robotics in Kenya. The RSK believes that robotics can be a powerful tool for STEM education, and that it can help to inspire and engage students in STEM subjects.

In a recent statement, the RSK called for the establishment of robotics clubs in schools and institutions across Kenya. The RSK believes that these clubs would provide students with the opportunity to learn about robotics, to develop their STEM skills, and to compete in robotics competitions.

The RSK also believes that robotics clubs can help to bridge the gender gap in STEM education. The RSK is calling on schools and institutions across Kenya to establish robotics clubs. The RSK believes that these clubs can make a real difference in the lives of students, and that they can help to inspire the next generation of Kenyan scientists, engineers, and innovators.

RSK believes that the game changer is introducing AI and robotics learning to school-going children early in their learning life."Growing up with robotics kits will inspire many of them to find a career in computer science and general AI courses,"
