‘Learn to Play Go’ Brings Game to Elementary School Students

Monday April 21, 2014

“We just finished our ‘Learn to Play Go’ presentation at Sedgwick Elementary School, in Cupertino, CA, reports Wenguang Wang.  “Yanping Zao and I presented go to four classes of third-graders in four 30-minute sessions (over 90 kids total).  Since we have done this every year for Sedgewick’s Annual Discovery Day, most of the kids in third grade or higher have been exposed to go.  During the event, we talked about some fun facts of go, taught them the rules, and everybody played a few 9×9 games.  Most kids loved the game and many were interested to visit our Santa Clara Youth Go Club to have more fun playing go,” adds Wang. -Paul Barchilon, E-J Youth Editor.  Photo by Yanping Zhao: Wang teaching students at Sedgwick Elementary.
