Esports is more than just fun. Gaming shares many of the same benefits as traditional athletics, such as sportsmanship, leadership, communication, and teamwork. “It provides a bridge to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields. In order to improve, teams must analyze data and statistics, review strategies, and become proficient in using game-playing technology” (Dr. Laurie Walczak, “The Benefits of Esports”: University School of Milwaukee). So have fun and grow your skills in a variety of areas.
