This event is all about encouraging and celebrating the innovators of the future. The key ethos for the event is to enable members take what you have learned in CoderDojo to a new creative level, a level that we could not have imagined and should be rewarded
TO EVERYONE WHO MADE COOLEST PROJECTS 2014 A SUCCESS
Are your ready for Coolest Projects 2015 - Dublin & Silicon Valley
Members attend CoderDojo’s globally due to their passion for technology and learning. We want CoderDojo members to take this passion and create ideas and projects relevant to them.
Coolest Projects was created to encourage, promote, support and showcase the creativity within the CoderDojo community. With projects CoderDojo members can make their most exciting ideas a reality.
DEVELOP YOUR IDEA
Once you have decided on your great idea, it is time to start coding it. Programming a project you are passionate about provides you with an opportunity to really extend what you have learned at CoderDojo to a new level.
CoderDojo Mentors are on hand to help you with your projects. You are not expected to know how to program every part of your project, but that is part of the fun!
PRESENT YOUR PROJECT
It’s way easier to showcase ideas you are passionate about, we want to encourage CoderDojo members to present with confidence and pride. Coolest Projects is a celebration of what you have achieved with the skills and knowledge learnt at CoderDojo.
Would you like to launch your project online or in the app store? We want to provide you with the necessary skills to take your project further and see you develop it from an idea into a real world application that users are wowed by.

Our Awesome Supporters
The CoderDojo Foundation
Coolest Projects was created by passionate CoderDojo Champions and Mentors, the amazing support from the CoderDojo Foundation has helped the awards grow to include CoderDojo members from Dojos around the world! The Foundation has played an important part in supporting the global CoderDojo community and we were delighted when they joined forces with the Coolest Projects Team in 2013.
The Foundation team play an important role in both the Coolest Projects implementation and creative teams, helping to plan, organise and implement an event of this size. It would not have been possible for Coolest Projects to scale to where we are today without the help and support of the Foundation. Thank you for all your hard work and support!
This event was only made possible through the support and vision of Intel. When we sat down with Intel early in 2012 we identified this event for CoderDojo to support creativity, drive innovation, bring the CoderDojo community together and recognise the amazing projects CoderDojo youth were creating.
Thanks to Intel for partnering with Coolest Projects again helping it expand nationally. We are both passionate about encouraging the adoption of tech subjects and providing a sustained platform for the current generation. We want Coolest Projects to celebrate not only developers, but future tech thinkers.
Liberty Global & UPC
In January 2014 Liberty Global came on board to support the CoderDojo Foundation and assist in expansion of CoderDojo across Europe.
We were delighted when they came on board to support Coolest Projects and turn it into an international event. With their support Coolest Projects, for the first time, was able to bring members in from England, Scotland, Netherlands, Italy, Poland and Romania to share their creativity.
Since Coolest Projects 2014, we were delighted to team up with UPC when they setup CoderDojo Dublin 4.
It’s a true milestone for the CoderDojo community, and seeing kids from the ages eight up to seventeen building an array of apps, websites, games, even working robotic arms and all sorts of things – it’s truly incredible!

One project that rocked the foundation of Intel was Catriona’s creation, CoderDojo rock star. The aim of this ingenious project was to teach you how to play a musical instrument! It provided you with online instrument and video content to support your pop chart conquest.

What better way to give back to CoderDojo than to take what you have learned to make your CoderDojo better and more accessible to the local community. Well that’s what some of the members from Athlone CoderDojo have done. Having just learned HTML and CSS these CoderDojo members built a super cool website to support and promote their local Dojo.
