StemGen (OTC: SGNI), a leading broad automotive engineering and esports technology company, successfully completed its inaugural five-week D3eSports Cup powered by StemGen virtual esports school program series. The educational esports pilot program with Northeastern Pennsylvania Schools, consisted of 16 pre-qualified high school students testing teaching modules using motorsports via real and virtual interactions.
The D3eSports Cup powered by StemGen esports tournament series launched Tuesday, Feb. 23 for five weeks with students, aged 13-18, with varied levels of esports experience and academic aptitudes to assess the collection of a wide range of methods and data to support the school curriculum for D3eSports educational tournaments in the future.
"We are very pleased with the outcome of our 'D3eSports Cup powered by StemGen' pilot program with the Pennsylvania schools," said Simon Dawson, president and chief executive officer of StemGen. "The students/drivers were fantastic and offered excellent input throughout the entire five-week tournament. This educational program allowed us the opportunity to test different STEM teaching variables through esports to further connect our virtual-to-real platform. I believe some of our methods will help students look at driving on the road with a different view after having seen what can happen on the track virtually. They also were very excited to learn how adjustment to things like tire grip and the engine can affect your on-track performance, expanding their STEM principles. We were also excited about the input we received from them regarding our goal to help students navigate a career path they are passionate about and future education needs required being the exact route they wanted and desired. We will take much of the knowledge we gained from this tournament to further write our curriculum for future educational esports tournaments for schools, both high schools and universities."
"The D3eSports Cup pilot program we participated in was one of the most exciting things I've done," said 'MikeyBlueEyes', the 18-year-old tournament winning student from the pilot program. "And to win the five-week tournament made me really proud. The opportunity to race with other students my age was fun, competitive and I really liked everyone's enthusiasm for the tournament. I pretty much enjoyed every part of the tournament.
"The competition among the students was fantastic. Everyone put in their best effort, tried to beat each other, which was fun, and I loved putting in a lot of time practicing and making sure my car was fast. I also enjoyed sharing with the other students to make sure we all knew how to handle the track on race day and when it mattered the most. I felt the most important thing we learned is how competitors prepare in advance for a race, not just in esports but in the real world as well. Everyone put a lot of work and passion into their cars and preparation and it showed. Everything about this experience really motivated me and I can't wait to see what I can do in the future."
Simplicity Esports and Gaming Company (OTCQB:WINR) announced that it has acquired the assets of a gaming center previously owned by a PLAYlive Nation franchisee in Vancouver, WA. The location was originally opened in 2013 and has a database of over 17,000 unique customers. The Vancouver gaming center is expected to reopen in mid April.
Roman Franklin, CEO of Simplicity Esports, stated, "The Vancouver location is our fourteenth corporate owned gaming center and eighth on the West Coast. We plan to continue with strategic gaming center acquisitions as well as construction of new locations throughout 2021.
The disruptions in the commercial real estate market, due to COVID-19 lockdowns have created an amazing opportunity to partner with landlords that are enthusiastic about our esports gaming centers being an experiential draw to increase foot traffic for their malls. I expect Vancouver and our other corporate gaming centers with percentage rent leases to be profitable within the first 30 days of operating at full capacity."
Last week Simplicity Esports also announced multiple deals including a sponsorship and sublicensing agreement with its Brazilian subsidiary, Flamengo Esports totaling $200,000 USD.

Average minutes watched of the live broadcasts peaked at 35 minutes for the Valorant competition.
"Anyone who is still questioning the power of esports is beyond out of touch," says Matt Edelman, Chief Commercial Officer of Super League Gaming. "When amateur events and the personal stories of athletes aspiring to break through to the next competitive level generate this level of audience interest, you know you're in a growth market.
