With summer camps and academies plus year-round online learning, our STEM enrichment ecosystem paves the way for your child’s success in school, college, internships, and dream careers. For every course your child takes, they will earn experience points (XP). XP and badges are awarded on the way to achieving the revered Level 10 status—a resume-boosting honor acknowledged with a letter of recommendation from our CEO (unlocked by just 1% of iD Tech students!).
