15 reasons parents and kids are thankful for iD Tech—especially in 2020!

iD Tech in action

In extraordinary times like these, it’s important to remember what matters most. For iD Tech, that is hands-down the kids and families we are privileged to connect with through our programs.

Our mission is to provide life-changing experiences with tech, and while fulfilling this mission required an unprecedented pivot of our operations from on-campus programs to Virtual Tech Camps last summer, we put 100% into meeting our wonderful clients' needs in this unique moment. 

Of course, the ultimate measurement of our success is the feedback from the kids and families we serve. So we went straight to the source! 

Check out these real testimonials from students and parents. They share why they are thankful for iD Tech and how our virtual programs rose to meet the challenges of 2020. 

1. iD Tech was ready to provide a fun experience, even during quarantine 

"This was our first time using your virtual camps. It was fantastic. We are 3 weeks in quarantine in Spain. The kids can not even go for walks. Your camp really made them happy." -Judy 

2. Classes inspire kids to explore technology in life and at school

"She taught my son so many different things in Scratch. He absolutely loved doing the classes. He said that he learned so many new things in Scratch and that he would be a "pro" in Coding Club at his school next school year."  -Tiffany 

3. Kids can socialize, even at a distance

"Aidan was so patient with my son and the other two elementary school-aged children in his class. I was really impressed with how he was able to engage the students and how much my son looked forward to class each day." -Xtine 

4. Our curriculum unlocks the secrets of coding

"I like how he would go through the steps thoroughly and explain what the word ‘code’ actually meant and not just tell us to copy those words down." -Kevin 

5. Virtual camp delivered FUN to kids

"THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING CAMP I HAVE EVER GONE TO IN MY LIFE I WANT TO DO MORE!" -Colin

6. Our platforms provide ease & flexibility for families

"I LOVE that your process is 100% online. The website UX is good, checkout is easy, and communication is clear. Big thumbs up!" -Kerry 

7. Kids learn from expert instructors who really know their stuff

"I really enjoyed my Advanced Python Coding with Machine Learning and Cryptography class. Not only did we cover a lot of topics but my instructor, Dhruvatara, made sure that my class and I understood each topic well. She helped us out whenever we required help with our programs and there wasn't a time when she couldn't figure out an issue. She was also very patient and lively. I really enjoyed this class and I'll definitely return to iD Tech next summer. Thank you!" -Charlotte

8. Our courses inspire kids to learn more

"It was awesome! The instructor made sure we had fun, and his teaching was easy to understand. I learned a lot and I am inspired to keep going with Python!" -Ananya

9. iD Tech thrives online

"Heather (Spectre) was great, she was funny, engaging, and had great jokes. She made learning this super fun and explained things really well. She would use the whiteboard on Zoom and have us do games on the topic." -Isabelle

10. Kids are excited to share what they’ve learned

"Julianne had a really fun week and was excited to show us every day what she learned. I think she really enjoyed being with all girls too!" -Tracey 

11. We provide outstanding customer service

"Great customer service and we are grateful that you provide a great outlet for kids at this time!" -Jennifer 

12. iD Tech is the antidote to Zoom fatigue!

"After staying home and doing school online for three months, my son seemed disengaged and disinterested in learning. Taking this iD Tech course was just what he needed to spark his creativity and ignite a love for learning again. He was so excited to join the class each morning, and I never had to nag him to do his homework. He looked up to the instructor and had fun interacting with the other students. It was amazing to me that after ONE class, he already knew how to create a Roblox game. Our experience has been amazing, and we look forward to the next class!" -Michele 

13. We promote diversity & representation in tech

"My son just took two virtual iD Tech classes this summer (he also did Roblox Monetization)—he had female instructors for both courses. Both of the instructors were highly knowledgeable and engaging with the students. I'm extremely impressed that you are hiring and showcasing young women in tech. This is vital to keeping women in the profession. Please continue these tactics of promoting gender diversity in your talent pool! Nicely done!" -Sarkis 

14. Our courses motivate and inspire kids 

"My son was excited every morning to begin camp. I have never seen him so focused! Bradford was an excellent child instructor. Patient, kind and very knowledgeable." -Karen 

15. iD Tech sparks a passion for game development, coding, and more!

"Jaami was an EXCELLENT instructor, always going above and beyond, and lit a fire for coding and game development.....Braden is VERY excited to continue exploring this subject!!”- Denise
