Open gameplay for the gamer in you.

During the winter season, we pivoted from esports competitions to open video gameplay sessions on select Saturdays. These sessions were free and were set up in our Boeing North Exhibition Hall allowing for ample space so people could physically distance and stay safe. There were about 100 people per session, and sessions were streamed on our Twitch account (@STLScienceCenter).

The most popular games included Rocket League, Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart and Fortnite. Starting in March, esports will continue in a different location.
