Bold Idea Programs
Create new worlds with computing! Students will bring their imagination to life by coding their own creative projects, while learning the basics of computer science with their friends. Projects include animations, storytelling, the arts and game design.
Jr. High students begin using computer science as a problem-solving tool. The 14-week ideaSpark course is grounded in a design thinking process that includes discovery, ideation, prototyping, user testing and sharing. 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 sponsors in the audience.
