eSports and Careers in Technology
LHS started an eSports team in 2020 to offer something for students on campus and those who were learning remotely. Since then, it has grown and now includes teams for Rocket League, Madden, Splatoon, Super Smash Bros., and Mario Kart.
eSports is more than just playing video games, and that is why the city of San Antonio is supporting eSports in schools by building physical infrastructure to help build a talent pipeline of technology and engineering for a growing workforce need (https://www.portsanantonio.us/EIEF).
“Port San Antonio understands the increased role of eSports in both education and workforce development. As a result, the Port is further supporting San Antonio’s burgeoning gaming sector through its partnership with EIEF as it helps develop tomorrow’s tech leaders.”
Lutheran High School is proud to be one of the partners Port San Antonio has used to build the local eSports community and provide a new avenue for students to pursue careers in technology.
“Over the last few years, Port San Antonio has built a strong relationship with our local eSports community, and we are committed to supporting its success and growth,” said Port San Antonio Business Development Specialist Stephanie Garcia. “It is equally important for the Port to grow along with the community, and our partnership with the EIEF is only the beginning. We want our local gamers to feel that the upcoming innovation center, particularly the eSports arena, is their home – a place where they can have fun gaming while mastering their acumen to help build their futures.”
