We are looking for esport experts! Those who know how to set up FPS and build a CS: GO server, those who can talk even more and with more passion about LoL than Ćosić about football, and those who know that esport does not exist without quality stream that they can set up with their eyes closed.
Experience in organizing esport tournaments is desirable, but if you are a gamer and know every detail of at least one (two if you are a caster) games organized, sign up and become part of the esports team at the Games 2020! With a little effort, you’ll become a pro before the Games;)

Comments from last year's members
These were my first STEM Games that I attended and I can honestly say that it was fantastic. I met a bunch of people that I had a lot in common with. I enjoyed the new challenges and the new knowledge I gained. I recommend everyone who is looking for a good team and fun times to join the STEM Games this year. A good time is guaranteed 😀
I was thrilled by the Games because I was working under a lot of pressure with people I had just met and it worked out fantastic. I made new friends overnight, raised my organizational skills to a whole new level, and set a personal record for staying awake. STEM Games simply get the best out of people, and the eSport Arena is the best place to have fun...during the day 😀
The STEM Games have been an amazing experience. We worked a lot, and had fun even more 😀
Truly a real win win situation. Participating in the organization with over 150 organizers, I learned so much that it cannot be described, and also, STEM Games have such good energy, emotions and connection between all competitors, organizers and other participants that I would recommend everyone to experience it. It truly is a wonderful, unique experience.
The Games were a real challenge. With a lot of hard work and effort, we were able to make an event that paid off really well. Working in the organization brought me many experiences, and also the acquaintances that still exist today. Join us as while you have this rare opportunity! 😜
Experiencing STEM Games within an organization is really a unique experience.
You work your ass off, but you meet a great team, you learn a lot and you can eat really well :D.
I have always loved video games and esports, so I was really glad to be part of this team because I finally used that passion for gaming to great purpose and had the opportunity to share it with others along with the team.
Frequently asked questions
Team meetings are held at most once a week and primarily through Hangouts, so you can attend from anywhere!
If you are unable to attend a meeting, make sure to inform the team members about your work and read the summaries!
All team members need to have a personal computer (preferably a laptop) and a cell phone. Other equipment will be available at the Games.
We primarily communicate by Slack, track tasks through Trello, and hear (and see) each other using Hangouts.
Once the applications for eSport team members are closed, team leaders will review all applications and start the second round of selection, where you will speak face-to-face via Hangouts. After that, we will contact all those who have applied with a feedback information.
In order to participate in the STEM Games organization you do not have to be from Zagreb, not even from Croatia, or study at STEM faculty, all you need is a proper skillset, a will to work and a positive attitude for the event!
If you have a valid reason you can, but it is extremely important for us to have people who are in the organization from the beginning, leaving the organizing team just before the event is not okay! After all, it would be a shame to miss the Games.
