Fewer than 40% of K-12 schools in the U.S. offer computer science courses.

That's why Bold Idea partners with technology companies and innovative leaders — to ensure students have the critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork and foundational technology skills necessary to succeed in the 21st century.
 
Bold Idea students write software programs that help them study for a geography test and build websites about bully prevention. Just as important as their programming skills are their abilities to be an effective team member, have confidence when dealing with complexity and persist in working with difficult problems. In addition to computational thinking, our students develop skills businesses seek in employees and what universities seek in student leaders — and have struggled to find.

Join us to support young coders in north Texas.

The best part of Bold Idea is that it gets people to leave their work bubbles and share their knowledge and, more importantly, enthusiasm for technology with young coders. There’s something quite magical about seeing kids change their perceptions of computers from entertainment devices to creation machines.
