Valve extends iD Tech support

Valve has decided to expand its program that helps teach kids in universities nationwide.


Valve is expanding support for its educational iD Tech program. Through the expansion, Valve will provide Steam accounts, Valve games and Source SDK for students that are interested in learning more. 

iD Tech, which is the leading summer Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM for short) program for ages 7-18, is held at over 80 universities nationwide. With such a program, alongside such game schools at Digipen, children can learn a thing or two about game development, and possibly turn it into a career.

The program has paid off wonderfully for Valve, with over 36,000 students taking part, and a total of over 200,000 since 1999.

"The purpose of our program is to help students prepare for a career in one of the largest growing fields in the world," said Pete Ingram-Cauchi, CEO at iD Tech. "The support Valve has provided over the years is a tremendous value to the program and our students."

Those interested in the program can learn more by visiting the official ID Tech page.
