K-8 National Champion at Stepping Stones Children’s Museum

June 16th

CCFC member and recently crowned K-8 National Champion Kapil Chandran visited the Stepping Stones Children’s Museum in Norwalk Connecticut.  Kapil took on all challengers, ranging in age from 3 – 10.  Although many of the fearless little challengers had no knowledge of how to play chess, Kapil patiently taught the rules to as many of them as he could.  CCFC Club Manager Ian Harris was also on hand to give some of the students pointers before they took on the intimidating national champion!  Kapil’s clear and precise lessons and explanations no doubt sparked some future star chess players!
