About iD Tech

Our Silicon Valley family company defined summer STEM education

Our mission is to create life-changing tech experiences that embolden students to shape the future.

From summer camp startup to industry leader

In 1999, our family pioneered the very first tech camps for kids and teens. We’ve grown from 280 to 60,000 students per year, spreading Silicon Valley startup culture across the nation. No other program has our track record of long-term student success, our passion, or our reputation as the nation’s go-to summer STEM educator.

“In the beginning, we worked 7 days a week. We earned no salaries. We had no financing. But we believed in the idea of awesome technology education. Today, we’re the largest tech program in the world.”

50/50 

Gender parity in tech
Six years ago, just 12% of our campers were female. Today, over 50,000 girls have graduated from our co-ed Tech Camps and Academies, and our all-girls program, Alexa Café. Launched nationwide in 2015, Alexa Café is now the country's largest tech camp for girls.

2.4 Million 

Open STEM jobs
The Smithsonian reports that by the end of 2018, 2.4 million STEM jobs will go unfilled. Our long-term learning system equips kids and teens with skills for the most exciting, in-demand careers.
 

7,000

Student scholarships
10%, or 7,000, of our seats are reserved for underprivileged students to help bridge the digital divide. We believe that every child deserves access to quality tech education, regardless of socioeconomic background.

CULTURE

One-of-a-kind summer staff

Camps with character

That Director with the green mohawk? He’s a game design guru from EA. The Lead Instructor with the superhero cape? She’s a software engineering undergrad at MIT. Our selective hiring practices and in-person trainings deliver the most talented, passionate instructors—with the personalities to match.

Summer Jobs

Dedicated year-round team

Never “just another day at the office”

From our Education Department, Client Services, and Marketing, to Engineering, Risk Management, Payroll, and Logistics, our Main Office crew is committed to providing “Positively Outrageous Service.”

We work out in the open amidst brightly colored walls and creative décor and unwind with ping pong, Mario Kart, trips to the cereal bar, and generous PTO. On birthdays, we go BIG with personalized desk decorating sprees and celebratory lunch outings. Because “normal” is overrated.
