"American students trail their international peers in many subjects, but the achievement gap in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) subjects is particularly stark. American 15-year-olds ranked 25th among 34 countries in math, according to a 2010 report by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. There are many camps trying to close this gap, but one of the largest and most buzzed about programs is iD Tech..."
Why have over 170,000 kids and teens enrolled at iD Tech since 1999? It's largely due to a winning combo of tech-savvy instructors, nationwide university locations, a balance of lab time and outdoor summer fun, and the opportunity to turn interests into something BIG. Whether you're interested in programming, robotics, app development, game design, film, photography, or web design, find your niche at iD Tech. View all courses.
We're happy to be regarded so highly by this publication, alongside other esteemed summer programs like Camp Kesem, Camp BizSmart, and MASA (Mexican American Student Alliance), and more. Rock on, fellow summer camps!
