    20-FEB Catherine Eagleson, the founder of the Clue Detective Puzzle Agency is our speaker. At Clue Detective our passion is to promote the benefits of puzzling for lifelong learning. We believe in starting as early as possible. Puzzles are a brilliant learning activity that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. They improve our vocabulary, general knowledge, critical thinking, help us to focus. Best of all they are fun and entertaining. With the arrival of the COVID era, adapting to doing activities at home and remote learning are becoming far more necessary. The Clue Detective puzzle portal e-resource provides an innovative way for puzzlers to stay engaged, connected as well as to learn and be entertained in a virtual setting, eg. via Zoom. Many people feel the affects of isolation and anxiety, especially if they are living alone. A puzzle is the perfect activity to divert attention on to an enjoyable activity. It allows the puzzler to work to solve a (make-believe) problem, either individually or in a group. The power of today’s modern technology makes it easier to stay connected in these challenging times. Visitors are welcome to attend, just send an email to attendance@balwynrotary.org.au
