Learn More about Gaming in College

Learn More about Gaming in College

The San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) has teamed up with the UC San Diego esports program to create a mentorship program for high school students focused on esports and gaming.

Through the program, which started last year, UC San Diego students who are involved with esports mentor San Diego County high school students with a focus on opportunities for students to get experience to college gaming. Topics include:

  • Careers in esports
  • Healthy gaming habits
  • Introduction to college gaming
  • How to be successful in college or careers while enjoying gaming

“We are excited about this partnership and currently signing up high school students who want to learn more about gaming in college,” said Mark Brickley, a coordinator with SDCOE’s Educational Technology team.

Meetings for the new cohort will be held virtually every other week beginning in January.

High school students can sign up using this form. The deadline to register is 5 p.m. Dec. 23.

As classrooms and school districts across the nation kick off their 2023 Black History Month celebrations, let us remember the urgency and importance of teaching Black history beyond the month of February. The histories, stories, and voices of Black people should be centered, honored, and uplifted in school curricula every day.
