Esports Bowl 2019

The Esports Bowl was a unique event hosted by PCX and STEMWars that brought together educators and exhibiting companies to use the spirit of competition to help introduce S.T.E.M. education and careers to students. Attendees engaged in head to head competitions, hands-on simulations, workshops, and activities – while making new friends and enjoying unforgettable adventures.

 

 

 

The goal was to host organized middle & high school level esports leagues, in comfortable environments that promote healthy competition. Esports will inspire the next generation of S.T.E.M. leaders by developing a passion for S.T.E.M. careers in middle & high school and maintaining interest through continued engagement. Esports provides students with an experiential education that excites, engages, and enriches through a unique, learn-by-doing curriculum.
