The Cultural and Education Programme continued today with another exciting episode.

Sixty local children aged between 6 and 12 years old had the privilege to visit the venue and get immersed into the inspirational values of the mind sports. During the visit, the children received an introductory lesson from a representative of the Flaming Mountains junior chess team and were then initiated to the game of chess by no less than the Chinese International Grandmaster GU Xiaobing, Romanian Grand Master, Alina L’Ami. The children showed an unprecedented sense of excitement and adrenaline for such a unique experience. SportAccord officials welcomed the young guests and gladly joined the session to play a few chess games with the children. SportAccord Director General, Mr.Vlad Marinescu, addressed the children saying, “keep dreaming and do not be afraid to dream, but never forget to always work hard in order to make your dreams come true”. In order to make this experience even more unforgettable, at the end of the session all the children were awarded a set of gifts by the SportAccord representatives. Stay tuned for more news on the cultural and education programme of the World Mind Games 2014!

volunteers build chess tower to set the world record

民间志愿者造国象火焰棋塔创造世界纪录

2014年 12月 12日 13:50 责任编辑:刘毅 来源:中国棋牌网

2014世界精英智力运动会在北京国际会议中心举行。位于赛场一层的大厅里,矗立着一个五米高的巨大棋子——那是国际象棋中的皇后。设计者袁德俊介绍说:这件作品叫“火焰棋塔”,全部用纸板和瓶盖棋子搭建,由5所学校的2000名小学生每人一套,纯手工制作完成。从策划到完成只有一个半月的时间……

袁德俊说,这个创意是他想出来的,但有很多很多人参与完成,汇聚了这么多人的热情和爱心,申请不申请吉尼斯世界纪录已经不再重要了。

推广国际象棋不拘一格

袁德俊的本职工作是程序员,同时还是数独老师,还是手工老师。经历多了,思路也跟常人不大一样:把国象推广搞得轰轰烈烈,他本人并不精于此道:兴趣一般,棋艺水平也一般。他的本事在于,能让别人产生浓烈的兴趣。

最初带着自己的儿子玩国象,为了兴趣,他跟儿子发明了掷骰子的玩法——把棋子编上编号,掷出来几,就必须走哪个子。这样,运气成了主导胜负的因素,孩子玩起来自然就有了兴趣。后来,他又发明了饼干棋子——用饼干做成棋子,你在棋盘上把这个子吃了,就可以拿起来真的放到嘴里吃掉。再后来,他又发明了火焰棋:把棋子做成贴画,贴到硬纸片、瓶子盖、橡皮等等任何东西上,这样,下棋和手工融为一体,孩子们玩得不亦乐乎。

因为这些新奇的招术,儿子玩得乐此不疲,袁德俊就得给儿子找对手,于是就教会了儿子的小伙伴,又教会了小伙伴的父亲,又教会了小伙伴父亲的朋友……“火焰棋”已经推广到北京市40多所学校,在河南也播了种。他还把这套棋带到雅安,还走出国门,去了丹麦,被中国驻丹麦的大使誉为“促进中丹文化交流的民间力量”,高兴得老袁出来就跟国旗合了影。

他说:那样正常的培训班,孩子们一招一式,但总是赢棋的少,输棋的多,难过的占大多数,快乐的是极少数。火焰棋不一样,所有的孩子都很快乐。教育,应该是发现孩子的特点和优势,兴趣才是最好的老师。

在这里找到“着力点”

早在2008年,袁德俊的儿子出生了。此前,他一直在想,如何给儿子留下一点什么。

于是他报名做了志愿者,用自己的特长,为别人做网站搭平台,做久了越做越乏味。他又报名参加了一个给孩子讲故事的读书会,大家AA制买回来一些读物,每周固定时间给孩子们读故事。

“我读到的第一个故事,就是一只小老鼠,妈妈送给他件红毛衣,他穿出去小朋友们都觉得好看,于是大家都想穿一穿。后来小象也穿了,那件衣服被小象撑得不成样子,但故事的结尾,是小象鼻子钩着红毛衣,小鼠在荡千秋……”袁德俊似乎被什么东西拨动了一下,他说他从这个故事里懂得了什么是分享。

从这以后,他用力推广这个读书会,从最初的二十几个人,发展到后来的七十多人,但最终因为种种原因,还是没能坚持下来。

去年智力精英运动会上,袁德俊带着孩子们玩“蛋糕棋”,感染了许多人。丹麦大师彼德·尼尔森见后大加赞赏,热情地邀请他去丹麦交流。于是在今年的三月和八月,袁德俊两次去丹麦:“丹麦的小孩子就是玩,什么西班牙开局、法兰西开局,统统不管,‘水’得厉害。咱们去了就赢,不在话下。”

去年4月雅安地震,袁德震带了20套火焰旗奔赴灾区。在20所小学撒下火种后,返程上大巴时,听到身后有人叫他“老师”,是三个听过他课的孩子,偶然遇到他。三个孩子见到他很高兴,送给他一大串栀子花。

“那花很香,我一路拿着回到北京,飞机上空姐说,你这花真好。”

火焰棋一直在传递正能量

这个巨大的棋子,是一层层搭出来的。每一层又是用蜂窝纸板组装的,棋子高是5米,底座2.6米,皇冠部分1.36米,最细的腰身是0.78米,由5所小学的2000个孩子制作完成。袁德俊笑着说:“我是电脑高手,这些数据是我用电脑设计出来的。”

那是一个夏天,他跟儿子在小区里玩得热火朝天,旁边路过一对母子。儿子问母亲:“他们在玩什么?”母亲顺口回答:“火焰棋。”说者无心,听者有意。袁德俊想,火焰棋,有热情,可以传播,好,就叫这个名字了。

top of the flamechess tower

从有了名字,到有了棋队,到今天有了很多的“火种”,袁德俊在这个过程中,得到了太多太多的支持:缺少原材料,打电话给回收公司,说明意图,对方回答“行,我们支持你”。跟校长说要做一个创世界纪录的大棋子,将影响200所学校,校长说“行,我支持你”,跟家长说,家长说“行,你干吧,我们支持你”……袁德俊说:“从去年3月5号做这个火焰棋开始,发生了数不清的故事。因为大家的支持,我就是想停也停不来。”

这座巨大的皇后在国际会议中心展示7天后,所有物料将被分解为10000套火焰棋,赠送给更多孩子。

应该说火焰棋在袁德俊精心培育下,已经生根发芽。他现在也不知道以后会发展到什么样的程度:“现在有这么多人在举着我,我怎么能停得下来?这是大家的正能量在推着这件事情前进。”

袁德俊说他的初衷只是想自己能给孩子留下点什么值得传承的东西。他现在这件事情做得很大,但他给自己的定位依然是最初的那个身份:志愿者导师。

Learning to engage the mind

Cultural programme begins with educating young children about the power of mind sports.

Day 1 of the World Mind Games 2014 featured the visit of a local primary school as a core part of the cultural and education programme of the event.  The visit was led by a representative from the Flaming Mountains Junior Chess team and saw the participation of 20 children aged between 9 and 12 years old. During the educational session the children were able to learn more about the mind sports and had the unique chance to play flash chess right next to the competition area. Prior to the event, the children were actively involved in the construction of a statue made of 2000 chess boards and bottle caps. Many more cultural and pedagogical activities are yet to come in the following days!
