Coolest Projects International

Update 13 March 2020:

We have made the tough decision to cancel Coolest Projects International due to growing concerns related to coronavirus. We’re sorry to have to do this, but there is just too much uncertainty for us to continue to ask young people, parents, mentors, and volunteers to make travel and other arrangements.

Here is our CEO Philip Colligan’s message about this.

We want to thank you for your enthusiasm about Coolest Projects, and we hope to see you at a future event!

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

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!

Attend the event

Attend Coolest Projects International to see young people from all over the world showcase their awesome creations. This family-friendly event is free to attend for the general public, giving more people the opportunity to become inspired to create with technology.

Sponsoring the event in 2020

Coolest Projects can only take place with the support of our fantastic partners. In 2019 our sponsors included BNY Mellon, Blizzard Games, Travelport Digital, Workday, Facebook and many more.
