WHEATLEY ESPORTS CLUB
Wheatley eSports Club is a collaboration between Phyllis Wheatley Community Center, Minnesota eSports Club, and Microsoft Corporation.
A part of our DigitalTechWorks™ Academy Wheatley eSports introduces students to the world of competitive gaming. This program is gives youth ages 12 - 18 access to game consoles and equipment, thanks to our partnership with North High, the new home to the Wheatley eSports program. Through partnership with MN Esports Club (MEC), our Club will have access to various competitions throughout the year.
eSports players build a strong aptitude in STEM subjects and learn about computer networking, servers, and game design. Electronic Sports (eSports) are competitive video games. Like traditional sports, eSports can be single-player or team-based and helps kids learn self-improvement, sportsmanship, teamwork, tactical and strategic thinking, and other important life skills. Youth tie together their passion for playing video games with STEAM learning — and gain the skills needed to follow a career path in technology, which they may not have considered otherwise.
