Apparel and gear software company SquadLocker is partnering with STEM Fuse, a digital K-12 curriculum provider, to deliver esports curriculum and player jerseys to schools across the US.
“Jerseys are an important part of any team sport,” said Tyler Tatge, VP of Platform and eLearning Services at STEM Fuse. “However, when it comes to pro esports teams, jerseys and apparel are the centerpiece of their brand. STEM Fuse wanted to incorporate industry-aligned projects for our students. We are excited about offering our students this unique curriculum that Gary, a third-generation textile engineer, has developed with us. The applied learning component of allowing students to not only design their own jersey from SquadLocker but also learn how to market and sell merchandise for fundraising shows the application of textile technology and textile engineering in the real world, which we are thrilled about.”
Additionally, both sides launched the Start Your Esports Team Resource and an online retail store which launched on April 19th and is available to all students.
