The initiative, called Lega Scolastica Esports (www.legascolasticaesports.it), aims to create a national competition between schools based on competitive video games, to provide teachers and students with a much broader practical overview of the potential of esports.

Behind the idea of ​​the Esports School League are two realities that have been working with the school for years: Maker Campa company based on alumni and specializing in the use of video games as educational tools in schools and museums e CampuStoreItalian leaders in the education market, where for decades, by bringing technological innovation and distributing the most innovative products in the sector to schools, has changed the path of teaching staff.

While among teens 97% of boys and 83% of girls play video games but do not participate in extracurricular activities, the idea of ​​offering a competition between schools based on e-sports means many students reach out to these boys “move”. the solitary world of digital games in the common space of your school computer lab. For the organizers, eSports will be an inclusive and engaging moment for all students, including those who would not otherwise participate in any extracurricular activities.

Pierluigi LanzariniCEO of CampuStore: “Sports are based on technology and offer a natural path for students who want to pursue a university specialization in STEM disciplines. It also helps students develop these soft skills such as teamwork, communication and leadership.”

“I would like a higher education institution in our area to take part in the initiative. This year we will start with Rocket Leaguee from next school year, we are confident to offer players like League of Legends, Overwatch or Valorant. The introduction of sports in high school enables students to do what they love and gives them additional opportunities for personal feedback and recognition as they develop critical thinking and interpersonal skills. Marco Vigelini CEO of Maker Camp: “We will, however, provide a significant added value: for the schools participating in the Esports Scholastic League, we will offer courses for transversal skills and orientation, the former school-work alternative being clear, highly qualified on a series of software attributable to one of the major software houses in the video game industry.
