Frequently Asked Questions

Sure, YouTube can be those things, but think about the person behind the video—what kinds of videos are they making, how are they creating those videos, and why are they spending time and resources to do so? Some top YouTube channels are in place to educate, others to entertain; some aim to monetize…and some, all of the above! Thus, YouTube offers a lot more than what initially meets the eye.

Most people have heard of STEM, but what about STEAM? By combining video editing, writing an awesome script, and the countless other techniques that go into YouTube streaming, kids can blend their interests across the humanities and STEM disciplines.

2 billion logged-in users visit YouTube every month: that translates to a lot of exciting careers and monetization opportunities! Whether your child wants to become the next streaming sensation or is looking to dip their toe in the water of a new STEAM hobby, learning to create great content can open doors to studying film, graphic design, monetizing an online business, and much more.

Yes, this course is designed for beginner to advanced students. Our small class size ensures that each student receives individual attention and has the freedom to learn at their own pace.

At our on-campus programs, students get inspired by iconic architecture, learn in our next-gen labs, and get a taste of collegiate life. With our small classes, your child will progress at their own pace with the hottest software and hardware, while learning from carefully-vetted talent sought by companies like Google, Apple, EA, and Disney. They hire who we hire.

As the only STEM educator rooted in 23+ years of legendary camp traditions, we know that when learning is fun, kids and teens stick with it! At camp, students build relationships in a fun and inclusive campus setting, and in between sessions in the labs, can be found diving into high-energy outdoor games and video game tournaments, and bonding over legendary iD traditions like raffles, pie-your-instructor Fridays, and so much more.
