True Neutral, one of South America’s most notable esports organizations and the competitive esports-focused educational experience, True Neutral Academy, have received the STEM.org Accreditation™ trustmark. STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering, and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications. “True inherent role in the educational ecosystem (both direct & indirect) has placed it in the unique, but challenging position of leading others by example, while striving for continued improvement of its program in the ever-changing, highly competitive 21st century global economy” said Andrew Raupp, Founder and Executive Director of STEM.org. “It is game changing to be awarded the STEM.org Accreditation, something previously not accomplished in South America,” says Nicholas Braylan, Founder of True Neutral. “In some of the most desperate and difficult economies to navigate, we feel that this accreditation gives a sense of importance to our Academy experience as our curriculum focuses on developing not only in-game skill and strategy, but also important other out-of-game skills, like communication, responsibility, and teamwork.”

The resources and proven best-practices of this initiative have led to the world’s original and most recognized, blockchain-secured and fully decentralized STEM credentialing framework: STEM.org Accredited™ for programs, STEM.org Certified™ for people,STEM.org Reviewed™ for publishers, and STEM.org Authenticated™ for products.
ABOUT TRUE NEUTRAL
Founded in 2019 and headquartered in Latin America, True Neutral is one of the only esports organizations to witness international success after winning the region’s official Rocket League tournament: the RLCSX, moving their roster to North America, and obtaining their own in-game decal within the Epic Games Store. Rather than placing an official sponsor on their digital item, they referenced a local non-profit that focused on inclusivity within sports, called Abrazo de Gol (Hug from a Goal in English). With a vision based on inclusivity and provision of support, the South American esports organization wants to encourage the region to invest in infrastructure and a safe, inclusive, and collaborative environment in order to promote esports and raise the level of the region. True Neutral is also supported by its sponsors: clothing brand MAFLA and marketing firm Idenyo.
