Computer science is foundational knowledge that ALL students need. Help us make 21st century learning a reality for North Texas students.

Bold Idea is seeking operational funds for the growth and future sustainability of our technology education programs in order to serve a greater number of young students in Dallas and Collin Counties. Most importantly, these funds are crucial for program supplies, including laptops and student guidebooks, for two semester-long courses that provide 3rd - 10th grade students with computer science skills and development in critical thinking, problem solving and teamwork. Funding will also enable Bold Idea to provide high-quality volunteer training in order for students to work alongside supportive mentors who are devoted to their success.
