The Pennsylvania Interscholastic Esports Association (PIEA), provides high school programs the opportunity to compete for a State Championship in selected video game titles. Established in 2019, we are a nonprofit entity providing regulatory oversight and competition guidelines for Interscholastic Esports in Pennsylvania. Our primary mission is to build confidence in the integrity of esports programs within high schools, promote curriculum that enhances STEM/STEAM and other educational opportunities. Esports gives students the opportunity to develop social and emotional skills, problem solving, adaptability and much more.Currently any individual who may want to participate in any event, season, or game title may contact me specifically to be added to the esports team within their district. A tryout will determine if they can participate, if there is no team within the district the individual resides in, we can look into the next closest district/school with a team.A full policy is still being discussed by the Board of Directors, but I would love to provide all students with these opportunities!

- CraftMap -A US. Geography Resource created by a homeschooled student. My product, known as the CraftMap, is a fun, interactive diorama kit that teaches students U.S. geography through drawing dot-to-dot puzzles, coloring maps, and folding origami models. I started with a map of the 11 states in the Northeast, and from there, my plan is to expand by creating kits representing other regions of the country. For each state, a student creates a state sign with background information and fun facts, assembles a “Who Am I” fold-up card about a famous person from that state, and folds two state-related origami models. There are a total of 22 unique models that can be made from each kit. Since the student is creating a diorama, the learning is interactive, engaging and there’s a permanence to having the completed diorama sitting in the home reinforcing what the child has learned.In addition, I’ve filmed over two hours of instructional videos that are easily accessed by QR codes printed on the instructions - which allows students to follow along with the directions at their own pace.
