“I love to see the different projects and the people from all over the world, who come to show the things that inside are very similar but in practice are very different and have many different uses.”
“I think it's a really good way to see other people’s projects and I think it has really helped me get a view of how much there is involved in building technology.”
“To any kids that are looking to enter a project in Coolest Projects, I would definitely encourage them to go in with an open mind.”
