TEAMWORK AND SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL LEARNING
Kids love games and need life skills. We teach them teamwork, collaboration, handling frustration, and leadership in a format they love. Esports can help promote healthy competition and provide an outlet for stress relief. Teams can help boost school spirit, as well as generate excitement and pride among students, parents, and the community. High schools that start esports teams will find that they quickly become a popular and valuable asset to the school community. But it's more than that. Playing video games can help improve students' social-emotional learning. They learn how to cooperate with others, handle defeat, and deal with stress in a healthy way.
Emotional intelligence is the ability to be aware and understand emotions, both in yourself and in others. Emotional intelligence can help players to stay calm under pressure, make strategic decisions, and perform at their best when it matters most.
Self-confidence is the belief in oneself and one's abilities. It's an essential quality for success in competition, whether it's in esports, academics, or the business world. Those who are self-confident have a sense of security and faith in their own abilities. It's what gives you the courage to stand up for yourself and pursue your dreams.
When it comes to esports, teamwork is everything. In order to be successful, players need to be able to work together seamlessly in order to achieve their common goal. This is why it's important to us to nurture players who are not only skilled in their own game, but also have good communication skills and a willingness to work together.
Esports require a great deal of coordination and teamwork in order to be successful. This is where leadership comes in. A good leader is someone who can motivate and guide their team to victory. Esports leaders need to be strategic, decisive, and calm under pressure.
Resilience is the ability to withstand or recover from difficult situations. Being resilient doesn't mean that you never make mistakes or that you never feel pain. It simply means that you have the strength to keep going even when things are tough. Esports, like traditional sports, is an excellent way to teach resilience to students.
Esports requires a great deal of hard work and dedication. Teams need to develop individual skills, as well as team skills. They also need to be able to think strategically and adapt quickly to changing game environments. Providing students with the opportunity to experience, and see the value in hard work is a great benefit to having an esports team.
"We flip the script on gaming and esports to bring students an educational experience in social and emotional intelligence. Our esports teams learn to overcome the toxicity that is attributed to online games and replace it with goal-oriented, strategic teamwork, and learn the skills they need to lift each other up in and out of the game."

WHY STEM FORGED?
MORE THAN JUST CURRICULUM
WE PROVIDE THE COACHES
When STEM Forged operates in a classroom, our remote coaches handle the legwork with coaching, and technical support.
This means that teachers step into a facilitator role. They monitor the students on a behavioral level and get to build valuable rapport; all while the classroom or afterschool program continues to operate efficiently under their watch.
