All projects are welcome, in any programming language or using whatever hardware you have to hand, and whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned expert.
You can work as an individual or as part of a team of up to five. Coolest Projects events are open to all levels of ability; the focus is on creativity, participation, and most of all on having fun!
Entries can win awards in different categories, from games and mobile apps to advanced programming. You can read about the categories here.
The project registration form is simple, and you should complete it with the adult accompanying you to the event.
Successful applicants will be notified on 11 February 2019 at the latest.
Our goal is to ensure projects from all over the UK are able to attend. Therefore, those travelling from outside the Manchester region are eligible to apply for a travel bursary before 11 February.
Coolest Projects UK can serve as a fun family day out, educational school trip or an inspiring visit for any young people interested in taking part in the future.
Workshops, speaker series, showcases and awards will all be scheduled throughout the day with lots of fun activities for young attendees to engage with.
Doors open to the public from 10.30am and the event will finish at 3.30pm.
A full schedule of activities on the day will be updated closer to the event.
