Celebrate the world’s young tech innovators

Coolest Projects International is a world-leading showcase for young innovators who make stuff with technology. If you’re up to 18 and you’re making something with technology for fun, to solve a problem, or as a creative outlet, then we want you to come out and share your project with us!

Taking part

Project registration is now open! Young people can apply for Coolest Projects International up until Sunday 5th April.

The 2019 event was a huge success! More than 680 young creators from 15 countries came to share 550 projects with one another and with more than 5000 members of the public attending. It was one of the biggest Coolest Projects yet!
