Infusing STEM into Esports

Updated: Jul 31, 2023





Infusing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) into esports has been a growing trend in recent years. The goal is to use the interactive medium of video games to encourage students to actively learn new skills and solve problems in unique situations. This integration has a range of benefits for students, including improved self-esteem, hand-eye coordination, visual-spatial reasoning, and eyesight (with protective lenses).


According to, structured esports programs can also provide students with meaningful social interaction and can lead to new career and technical education pathways. These programs support STEM learning by promoting teamwork, problem-solving, scientific methodology, using data and evidence, and technical proficiency. Mathematics are also critical to the esports ecosystem and can help students interested in game design to learn polynomial equations and how to build functions and math models.


Researchers at the University of California, Irvine identified specific strategies that institutions can use to connect esports programs with underrepresented students, such as themed housing where men and women can encourage each other to explore STEM subjects through their mutual love of gaming.


In conclusion, infusing STEM into esports can provide a unique and effective way to support students' learning and development. This approach offers a range of benefits, including improved self-esteem, hand-eye coordination, visual-spatial reasoning, and technical proficiency, as well as providing opportunities for new career and technical education pathways.
