Esports has moved from just being a hobby to being a professional industry that is being supported by gaming console companies (Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo), game developers (Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, Nintendo). Platforms such as Twitch, Discord and Youtube allow for gamers to live stream games and develop “fans” for their style of play which can eventually lead to being recruited for colleges that have esports programs, or lead them to being recruited to play professionally for a team. Esports provides an opportunity to expose youth to different aspects of STEM education and careers related to the gaming industry from being a professional gamer, to marketing, broadcasting, coding, game development, and many other careers.
