Where your idea meets the world!

Whether it's big, small, weird, wonderful, a work-in-progress, or a world-beating idea, we'll give you the opportunity to share your project with our incredible international community of makers.

What is Coolest Projects?

Coolest Projects is a celebration of young digital creators and the amazing things they make with technology. There's an annual worldwide, online Coolest Projects showcase and in-person Coolest Projects events also take place in several countries.

Registration for the Coolest Projects online showcase is now closed. Check out the incredible projects made by this year's creators in the online showcase gallery.

Get inspired!

In 2023, over 5,800 young people from 37 countries joined the Coolest Projects online showcase! They made everything from platformer games to robotic arms, and built projects to help their communities, protect the environment, or just for fun.

We'll be celebrating all our amazing 2024 creators in a special livestream on 26 June 2024. While you're waiting, catch up on the 2023 livestream celebration or check out the 2024 showcase gallery.

“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.”

George, UK
