It turns out that there is a secret to the elusive perfect present, and we’re going to let you in on it.
Picture the last time a gift led to an ear-to-ear smile (or perhaps think back to a memorable gift from your own childhood!). That probably isn’t the last memory you have with that particular item, is it?
As any parent knows, child delight comes not just from what a gift is, but from the memories kids will make with it (albeit unknown at the time!). So, this holiday season, give the gift of an experience your child will cherish forever, and potentially lead to many more!
This is our specialty at iD Tech. We are passionate about bringing life-changing STEM experiences to kids year-round, and the holiday season is no exception.
Cyber Week savings & exclusive offers
This Cyber Week, we’ve got the ultimate guide to awesome STEM gifts that make memories and inspire kids to love technology. Again, that’s the magic of the most memorable gifts: the experiences and memories they will make.
Because all kids are different, we’ve also taken into consideration different personalities and interests in crafting our offerings—there’s something for everyone’s list this year!
But that’s not even the best part.
It’s important to us that kids are learning and engaging with tech, rather than feeling burned out! After all, there’s a difference between staring at a screen and truly engaging with technology. (Parents know this better than anyone!)
That difference often lies in the right guidance, the right mentor, and the right path to creating something kids can be proud of.
That’s where iD Tech comes in.
Check out our 2020 guide to hands-on STEM gifts and more! There’s something for all ages, experience levels, and interests. Each of these gifts are not only delightful and expertly designed—they also offer hands-on learning and STEM enrichment.

For the hardware enthusiast
This holiday season, our Online Private Lessons offer hardware add-ons for the student who wants the latest hardware toy, and the parent who wants to make sure they use that "toy" to learn!
When paired with a lesson, amazing tech hardware can be engaging and fun—kids may well forget they’re learning as they “play” thanks to fantastic mentorship from our instructors!
On top of that, our carefully curated curriculum ensures the novelty doesn’t wear off before students have learned new skills.
It’s always fun to learn how to code with Sphero RVR! This robot shows kids the fruits of their labor as it learns more and more impressive skills as their programming skills grow!
