The Judit Polgar Chess Foundation for Educational Benefits has been working on the „Chess Palace” programme for more than a year, running pilot projects in several schools from September 2012.

The educational chess programme proved to be very successful with children, teachers, parents and educational professionals as well. From last September there has been a non-stop interest from many other school in Hungary, and also many schools from several other countries. Because of the great interest in this initiative, the Foundation regularly holds open lessons to demonstrate the methodology to teachers and professionals interested in introducing the subject at their own school.
