Aug 24, 2020

The growth of high school esports will have a direct impact on the growth of the esports and gaming industry as a whole, as many of the kids who become involved will turn into lifelong gamers with loyalties to the publishers they discover. In this featured session, PlayVS founder Delane Parnell and Peter Pham, co-founder of startup incubator Science, discuss the bright future of the industry, how esports is teaching important life skills to students of all backgrounds, and the opportunities for diversity and inclusion it offers over traditional team sports.
