Coolest Projects UK – Save the Date

Coolest Projects is a world-leading showcase that empowers and inspires the next generation of digital creators, innovators, changemakers, and entrepreneurs. This year, for the first time, we are bringing Coolest Projects to the UK for a spectacular regional event!

With over 120 Dojos across the UK and growing, we want to give the thousands of Ninjas who regularly create with technology the opportunity to showcase what they’ve invented. This is the first time that a regional Coolest Projects has been managed by the CoderDojo Foundation. We are looking forward to organising and supporting more regional events around the world in the future, to give more young people the chance to celebrate what they create with tech.

Coolest Projects UK will be held on Saturday 28th April at Here East in London. We are looking forward to seeing the projects that young people have designed and built at their local Dojo! Seeing young people share their ideas, make new friends, and learn from one another is always a highlight of Coolest Projects International, and we can’t wait to see young people be just as passionate at the London event.

Registering Project Ideas

​Project registration for Coolest Projects UK  will open in early February. Once registration is open, all young people who are interested can register their idea and save their place at the event.  Early-bird tickets for community members who’d like to accompany children who are presenting projects will be available free of charge in late February.

To help Ninjas get started, check out our design thinking workbook.

Supporting the Event

There are great opportunities for people and organisations to show their enthusiasm for helping young people get into tech and digital making by supporting Coolest Projects UK 2018. If you or your company are interested, we’d love to talk: please get in touch by emailing [email protected].
