ABOUT OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY COMPUTER CAMPS
This is our 6th season hosting Columbus, OH summer camps at our Ohio State University location. We strike the right balance between off-computer activities (creative games, sports, life skills, etc.) and essential technology education to foster STEM skill development (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Our popular Ohio State University summer day camps and overnight camps allow students to explore tech interests in a fun, yet challenging setting.
We have chosen Ohio State University to host our summer academic camps due to its leadership and excellence in public education. Similar to iD’s mission, one of the university’s core values is to “ignite a lifelong love of learning” in students. Ohio State is a multi-campus university with a main campus in Columbus where students benefit from a scholarly environment in which research inspires and informs teaching.
