The emergence of esports represents a valuable new tool in youth education. Esports is a collaborative medium where player interactions take place through video games in online or in-person environments, usually as a team. ESOGA’s programs and experiences include additional learning and team discovery, concepts that are especially valuable in core STEM disciplines.
ESOGA’s programs and online communities are also compliant with COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act) and supervised by TIS Screened and SafeSport™ Trained coaches. ESOGA’s mission is to work in concert with communities and schools to promote education and personal growth through esports. These programs are especially effective with middle and high school students.In recognition of these efforts, ESOGA was recently awarded the STEM.org Accredited™ Educational Experience Trustmark. This award recognizes the educational benefits and positive values that can be gained through ESOGA’s programs and services, and further equips youth with necessary 21st-century skills such as critical thinking, teamwork, and creativity.
“Structured esports offerings have the potential to build inclusive, pro-social environments that can facilitate sound educational outcomes in an exciting way. Pairing esports with STEM education can help students reach their full potential — ESOGA is the embodiment of both.” – says Andrew B. Raupp, Founder & CEO of STEM.org Educational Research™.
Nate Parent, Founder & CEO of ESOGA commented, “We are honored to receive STEM Accreditation as we continue to integrate STEM Educational Experiences into our esports programs and services. Through this accreditation, ESOGA will continue to develop esports experiences that encourage education, positive values, and development of 21st-century skills – all while playing the video games we know and love.”
