WaPo: Esports tournament aims to push students toward STEM

The Washington Post covered the EliteGamingLive event in Annapolis, Md., highlighting how the middle school students from Annapolis M.S. and Bates M.S. benefited from competing in the tournament.

“We don’t tell kids that they should be a professional video gamer. … Going pro for gamers can be something completely different than that,” Rent said. “Every company that sells something is going to need people that engineer those experiences. These are all things that are really important in the world of gaming that people get paid a lot of money to do.”
