Why iD Tech is the STEM Camp Your Kids Will Love
There are a number of great reasons to consider sending your kids to one of iD Tech’s summer STEM camps:
Quality Content and Instruction
Courses are taught by some of the best faculty around. iD Tech even recruits some instructors from prestigious universities such as MIT, Stanford, and CalTech. Professors use research-based instruction and personalized learning so that students can go at their own pace- all with an upbeat, camp culture setting. This high-quality instruction has led to 90% of iD Tech alumni going on to attend a 4-year university and pursue a career in STEM.
The best part? Your kids will be having so much fun while they learn while they learn that they’ll be begging to go back.
Activities at iD Tech camps are varied- in addition to instruction, kids spend time outdoors, compete in gaming tournaments, and have dress up days complete with raffles and prizes.
Camps this summer are one week long. Day and sleep away courses are available for ages 7-17 at all levels, from beginner to advanced. No need to worry about a student who struggles with math- the camp will only help! Choose from Coding 101, Robotics, Game Development, even C++.
Code With A Purpose
At iD Tech, kids aren’t just dropped in front of a computer. Campers are shown the process from beginning to end. Game Design 101 begins with an overview of the principles of game design and ends with their own game files to take home and play. One of their courses even allows you to build, program, and take home your own laptop.
These camps aren’t just coding- imagine printing out your own 3D characters or learning about cybersecurity. iD Tech is assisting kids all over the country to build the foundations they need for a career in STEM fields.
