Bold Idea supports the development of students as critical thinkers, problem solvers and effective communicators who are proficient in core technology skills – from coding to computational thinking. 


Bold Idea is an education non-profit organization based in Dallas. Our mentor-based programs ensure students thrive in an increasingly technological world, where critical thinking, problem solving and collaboration are necessary for success. Students learn computer science and 21st century skills through hands-on computing projects. As a team and guided by volunteer mentors, students learn to develop an idea through multiple iterations of ideation, prototyping and testing. Finally, they present their projects to an outside panel of experts drawn from parents, team sponsors and the community.

Young minds are capable of bold thinking in their youth. 
Bold Idea empowers students to create technologies that solve real-world problems, while giving them confidence as young coders.

From playing video games to creating them.
Bold Idea students like Adam are coding interactive games that teach kids which waste materials are recyclable. 


From surfing websites to building them.
Shelby and Meredith are building a website that matches nonprofits to students in need of service projects.


From downloading apps to coding them.
Bold Idea student Zion created a mobile app that encourages her community to conserve water at home.


We serve a diverse student population in Dallas and Collin Counties. Our focus is on meeting an individual student's needs over several years rather than serving a high volume of students in one program year. Support from Dallas technology companies, universities and local businesses has enabled Bold Idea to grow rapidly, yet smartly, from our incorporation in 2015. We will continue to lean on our community network as we seek to scale our technology education programs across North Texas and impact a greater number of students.
