Rockstar Stage Presentations - Brandon Egnarski - Building an eSports Clubs In Your School

Presentations from The Rockstar Stage

The One Conference 2017

The Rockstar Stage has become a favorite element of The One Conference for many as the focal point is on hearing directly from teachers and students regarding tips, tools, and inspirational messages about how they use technology in their classrooms. It is a celebration of our staff and students, giving them a few minutes in the spotlight to share their very best ideas!

Rockstar Stage Presenter: Brandon Egnarski

Brandon Egnarski
Waukesha West High School

Brandon Egnarski is a business teacher at Waukesha West High School. He is also the founding advisor to West's eSports club.

In the talk Brandon talks about his personal and professional experiences with gaming, and he identifies why eSports might just be a value add at other schools. eSports is becoming a legitimate, funded, possibly even NCAA recognized activity that is of high interest to students. It is also a way to introduce and create bonds for students who otherwise might not connect at schools.

Brandon's group at West High School has over 100 students and is an active way for kids to connect, relax, and have fun. He hopes to connect with others who might be interested in building an eSports team at their schools.
