We’re thrilled that Coolest Projects is taking place this year as an online showcase, and registration opens today!
As so many young people are currently at home all over the world, we wanted to create an online space where they could share their tech projects, be inspired by their peers, and celebrate and recognise each other’s achievements as a community.
If you’re ready to get started, you can go ahead and register your project! Don’t worry if you need more time – you’ve got until 28 June to register.
A chance to be creative and have fun
Coolest Projects is a great opportunity for young people to get creative, have fun, learn from others, and be a part of something truly special.
To get involved in Coolest Projects, all that young people need is an idea that involves tech, and the enthusiasm to bring it to life. If they need inspiration, they can explore our Digital Making at Home series of free, weekly code-along videos and step-by-step project guides. We’ve also got support for parents who want to learn more about the tools and programs their children could use to create a tech project.
All project types and all levels of skill are encouraged
Coolest Projects is open to anyone up to the age of 18, and young people can join wherever they are in the world. All project types and all levels of skill are encouraged, from beginner to advanced, and it doesn’t matter whether the project is a work in progress, a prototype, or a finished product — every project is welcome!
You can also check out our FAQ page for more details.
Young creators get to share their ideas with the world
All submitted projects will be showcased for the whole world to see in the new Coolest Projects online gallery, so that we can all celebrate the effort, enthusiasm, and creativity of young people who have turned an idea into reality using tech.
In the online gallery, you’ll be able to filter projects and explore at your leisure. We’ve enlisted some special judges to help us pick out favourites!
Get involved with Coolest Projects
If you know a young person who has made a digital creation, then encourage them to register it for Coolest Projects, be it an animation, website, game, app, robot, or anything else they’ve built with technology. Projects can be registered in the following categories: Hardware; Scratch; Mobile Apps; Websites; Games; Advanced Programming.
Read our guide on how to enter – young people under 16 will need a parent or guardian to assist them with submitting a project.
Projects need to be registered before 28 June 2020, although they don’t need to be completely finished. We can’t wait to see all the wonderful ideas and projects from the young makers out there.
This year’s Coolest Projects online showcase wouldn’t be possible without the support of our sponsors — thank you!
