STEAM & EA Sports

Innovation in the 21st century requires not only a strong knowledge of concepts in science, technology, engineering, and math, but also the creative kick to be truly competitive.

EA SPORTS takes pride in the magic that happens when you bring together science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM).  Without stunning artwork and visuals, the technology and engineering that delivers the “Madden NFL” experience would not have the same power or impact.

Electronic Arts (EA) is a leading global interactive entertainment software company, and you know them from their engaging, groundbreaking games such as Madden NFL, EA SPORTS FIFA, The Sims, and Battlefield. Take a look behind the screen with our Virtual Field Trip and get to know the talented men and women engineering the world’s coolest games!
