The benefits of after-school Contract Bridge programs on student success.

Playing contract Bridge is complicated for most adult neophytes to the game.  Yet Bridge has  shown itself to be an  effective means at improving  math, strategic and higher order  thinking skills in players of all ages.  This is why Bridge enthusiasts, and self-made billionaires,  Bill Gates and Warren Buffett have been subsidizing after school Bridge programs at the Primary and Secondary school level throughout the US and now Canada. The CBC’s P.E.I.  Island Morning show reported on the first Bridge club in one of their primary schools on March 14th 2012.  Have a listen here to what the Students Somerset Elementary in Kinkora are saying.
