With fewer than 40 percent of K-12 schools in the U.S. offering computer science courses *, Bold Idea is partnering with technology companies and innovative leaders to ensure that students have the critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork and foundational technology skills necessary to succeed in the 21st century.
Bold Idea students can write software programs that help them study for a geography test and build websites about bully prevention. Just as important is their ability to be an effective member of a team, have confidence when dealing with complexity and persist in working with difficult problems. In addition to computational thinking, we develop in students the skills that businesses are seeking in employees and what universities are seeking in students - and struggling to find. Join us in supporting young coders in north Texas.
