Children and teens are invited to develop their minds and practice problem-solving skills that apply on and off the chessboard with members of the Pittsburgh Police Department.

Chess is a two-player strategy board game played on a checkered board with 64 squares arranged in a grid. The game is believed to have originated in 7th Century India and became popular in Europe. Each player begins with 16 pieces (representing a king, queen, bishops, rooks, knights and pawns). The objective is to checkmate the opponent’s king by placing it under an inescapable threat of capture.

Admission is free. For more information, call (412) 421-2517.
