Emeritus Expands Into K12 Through Acquisition Of iD Tech Bringing Equitable STEM Education To Adults And Youth Globally 

The companies will bring expert instruction in STEM fields to individuals worldwide, with a shared goal of bridging the STEM opportunity gap

Emeritus announced today a definitive agreement to acquire iD Tech, the world leader in youth STEM education for $200 million. The acquisition, which is being made through Emeritus’ parent company Eruditus, marks Emeritus’ expansion into K12 STEM education, as the company grows to prepare individuals of all ages to succeed in the workforce, and positions Emeritus as one of the largest and fastest-growing skilling platforms. Upon the closing of the transaction, iD Tech will operate independently, maintaining its all-star team of instructors and employees. Emeritus and iD Tech’s distinct, yet highly complementary, offerings will be scaled to support a global audience with improved learning experiences. 

STEM career opportunities are projected to grow exponentially, with an estimated 3.5 million jobs in the U.S. alone that need to be filled by 2025. With offerings from both companies in coding, math, game development, robotics and more, Emeritus and iD Tech are positioned to make STEM learning more accessible, paving the way for brighter futures in STEM occupations. 

Emeritus and iD Tech share a pedagogical approach rooted in positive learner outcomes. Whether delivered online or in person, learning programs from both companies are recognized for their innovative content, hands-on instruction and mentoring initiatives, and their accessibility and affordability. While virtual courses are the present focus, both companies will also continue to expand their in-person programs, many taking place at top universities, in the US and globally in 2022.
