One million STEM jobs are projected to go unfilled by the year 2020. We’re talking some of the highest-paid, most creative careers imaginable. Yet only one in ten high school students have access to computer science courses—and far fewer at the K-8 level—meaning they are missing important instruction.
But what about summer?
At iD Tech summer programs, students ages 6–18 code apps, design video games, mod with Minecraft, engineer robots, build websites, produce movies, create wearable electronics, and more. Courses are taught by tech-savvy, adult-only staff in small clusters of just 8 students per instructor—guaranteed. iD Tech offers five summer camp experiences in Northern California:
