"Four years of empirical research confirms the benefits of NASEF's scholastic esports approach. Our findings demonstrate that, through its system, NASEF helps students increase their interest and affiliation with school, improve STEM learning and interest, build positive relationships with peers and adults, and strengthens self-regulation."
