Scrabble is an educational game which positively impacts participating kids by strengthening their verbal skills while encouraging curiosity, time management and strategic thinking in them. It also helps increase the attention span & concentration levels in a child. A game of Scrabble gives both sides of our brain a workout and is an excellent way of enhancing language, math, and cognitive skills.
For over two decades, the School SCRABBLE Program has been providing kids a fun and worthwhile extension of the classroom. Collins and Mindsports Academy Education program are now launching the education program in India.
The winners of the 2016 regional School Scrabble finals will win the chance to represent India at the World Youth Scrabble Championships in Lille, France, in August 2016.
