Eight Queens

Age 7 to 11 Challenge Level:

This is a famous problem: Place eight queens on a chessboard (an $8$ by $8$ grid) so that none can capture any of the others.

Remember that a queen can move any number of squares across, down or diagonally.

This is a good one to do outside with seven friends standing on an $8$ by $8$ grid!

Is there more than one solution?
