"What brought us to Gaming Concepts was the education first approach. Many of the companies that approached us talked about esports competition and educating our students was an afterthought. Gaming Concepts is the exact opposite, which is how it should be. They are teachers first and their curriculum is student and educator focused. If your program is interested in competition, they can help, but it is not something they have ever pushed. All my dealings have been positive and I always walk away knowing they want what is best for students."
