ÉDS Dragons attending the Expo
We are excited to attend the Scholastic Esports Expo. This is an amazing opportunity for our students to learn about esports in schools and the opportunities that can come from it, compete together in-person, and explore the new Red River College campus. With multiple keynote and panel discussions for students to take in, as well as opportunities to compete and game socially with schools from all across the province, we are excited our students have this opportunity. More info about the event and fundraising below.
