If you didn’t catch us at talkSTEM’s Pi Day 2017 in the Dallas Arts District, have no fear. Bold Idea is participating in more community events this spring — plus, offering a few of our own. Here is what we have planned so far:
With community partners
City of Frisco 25th Annual Easter Eggstravaganza
Ages 12 and under, and their families, are invited to a bring their Easter baskets to this 25th Annual event on the fields at Toyota Soccer Center, located behind Toyota Stadium on Main Street. There will be more than 80,000 Easter eggs up for grabs. Enjoy bounce houses, face painting and photos with the Easter bunny. Bold Idea will join other youth organizations and offer some hands-on activities for young students. We’ll be making binary bracelets and learning how to encode numbers in binary. Our team will also be available to share info on the next semester of CS First and ideaSpark.
