The first day of the conference, Friday, will be dedicated to Pre-School Chess. The in-person meeting would take place in the afternoon followed by the welcome event for the STEM conference.

The second and third days, over the weekend, will be dedicated to Chess and STEM. We have identified STEM as the most relevant topic in the educational context. We ran a conference on Chess and Mathematics in 2014 which opened new ground. We now seek to revisit this topic and to expand it into the broader group of subjects known as STEM, namely Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

There will be inclusive lunch and catering with refreshments and snacks at the Conference for attendees.
