One of our goals in CCL is to help to develop not just the best chess players in the world but to also help to develop the best people in the world. With great pride, CCL has teamed up with one of the top mathematicians and prodigies of our time to create a new learning environment for prodigious activities, in addition to chess. At least initially this project will be focusing primarily on math and secondly on piano. Where it goes from there will be up to Harvey. He currently has some thoughts about adding computer programming, as well as other plans for growth for this new, exciting, and permanent aspect of CCL.
