Bold Idea's computer science programs provide education in coding concepts and computational thinking, mentoring and a team-based learning environment for students ages 7 - 14. Registration is now open for the spring semester, starting Saturday, February 4, at locations across the Dallas area, including mobile app development company Bottle Rocket. Parents can learn more and register online at

Bold Idea programs empower students to create their ideas through weekly coding sessions with support from volunteer mentors.

  • CS First - Ages 7-10. Bold Idea uses Google's CS First program to introduce computer science to our youngest students. The 10-week program involves block-based coding using Scratch and are themed to attract students with varied interests like sports and the arts.

  • ideaSpark - Ages 11-14. In the 14-week ideaSpark course, students develop proficiency in computer programming languages and collaborate on their own creative project, from mobile apps to websites. At the end of the semester, student teams share their projects at a Demo Day event with family, mentors and the community in the audience.
