Young Coders Today. Bold Leaders Tomorrow.
We are all born with a desire to create. Using Lego blocks and paint, our imagination spurs us on to realize our big, bold ideas. In the 21st century, kids have a new tool at their disposal: code, the building blocks for the technologies all around us.
Young people today want to build something they're passionate about — something that matters. We nurture their passion with skill development in computer science through collaboration, encouragement and the environment to thrive.
Bold Idea is a Dallas nonprofit that develops and empowers young minds to execute bold ideas through the power of technology.
