A puzzling matter

Eric Berlin, of Milford, author of The Puzzling World of Winston Breen, recently visited the Amity Middle School in Bethany, as shown in the photo at right, and delighted everyone with his presentation and puzzle filled game show, according to educators. Berlin is a member of the National Puzzlers’ League and has written a variety of puzzles, including crossword puzzles for the New York Times, educators said.
Berlin’s school program, sponsored by a grant from Wal-Mart of Derby, includes details about puzzles and how they relate to real-life problem solving. He presented many anecdotes that demonstrated what puzzles have taught him about keeping organized, about focusing on the main problem instead of getting lost in details, and about keeping a flexible mind, educators said.
Students were encouraged to visit his blog for more fun puzzles:
