About Ohio State University

At our popular Columbus, OH summer camps held at OSU, we strike the right balance between off-computer activities (creative games, sports, life skills, etc.) and essential technology education to foster STEM skill development.

We have chosen Ohio State University to host our summer academic camps due to its leadership and excellence in public education. Similar to iD's mission, one of the university's core values is to "ignite a lifelong love of learning" in students. Ohio State is a multi-campus university with a main campus in Columbus where students benefit from a scholarly environment in which research inspires and informs teaching.

OSU was recently recognized as one of the top 15 "innovative" universities by U.S. News and World Report. A big university means a big opportunity. OSU is a world-class public research university and the leading comprehensive teaching and research institution in the state. Ohio State University is an excellent option for either a day camp or overnight camp program.
