Magnus Chess Academy: Mondays 3:30-4:30, Cafeteria (Flyer)

Magnus Chess Academy (formerly Silver Knights) has been teaching chess in Fairfax County since 2008. Over that time period we’ve taught more than 30,000 students in after school clubs, before school clubs, and camps. They include kids who’ve won seventeen state championships and four national championships, but most of our students are beginners looking to learn a fun new game. That’s how all the champions start out too!

They will be challenged to use a “secret ingredient” to keep the menu fresh and not let any food go to waste. Our Tiny Chefs will also be challenged to use their imaginations and new-found culinary knowledge to plan their own restaurants. If your Tiny Chef loves Top Chef and Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, this is the class for them!

STEM Excel: Fridays 3:30-4:30, Cafeteria (Flyer)

Intro to Game Design introduces students to important game design concepts so they may use their creativity and problem-solving skills to create fun, complete and shareable games! The course teaches students important factors they need to consider when creating a game, such as game mechanics, player experience, art, story and how to work within your scope. Via discussions, activities and computer work led by our instructors, students will learn how to make games from beginning to end. At the end of the session, students will leave with their own account information, so they may continue developing games at home and sharing them with friends and family.
