Did you know that every OCPS student has a ChessKid account on Launch? On this app, students can learn how to play chess, practice their chess skills, solve chess puzzles, play games, and even compete in online tournaments against other OCPS chess players. And... now all active OCPS ChessKid accounts have been upgraded to gold level memberships for the rest of this school year and for the 2021-2022 school year!
Gold Membership allows full, unlimited access to the entire ChessKid.com site and unlocks all of the ChessKid educational features: all of our Levels (with interactive, guided lessons), unlimited live chess, slow chess, all 10 computer chess levels, puzzles, puzzle duels, computer workouts & more than 800 educational videos - with new content added all the time. The game history for Gold Members saves all of the games played on the site. Make sure you access your account through LaunchPad to receive the gold level membership. Middle and High Schools can play on Wednesdays at 5:00 PM.
