Challenge

For kids in the United States, there are plenty of opportunities to celebrate field goals and touchdowns, but there aren't enough opportunities to celebrate their creativity, technology skills, inventiveness, and entrepreneurship. Kids who are interested in creating things with technology need to be provided with encouragement to pursue their passion and an event where they can collaborate with their like-minded peers.

Solution

Coolest Projects is a global event that celebrates kids' accomplishments with technology. Whether they've created a website, mobile app, invention, or game, kids can share what they make. Coolest Projects is also an opportunity for youth to share their work with like-minded kids, industry professionals, and the general public. The event's focus on projects means that young people are motivated to learn about technology by creating something that is meaningful to them.

Long-Term Impact

Coolest Projects serves as a culminating celebration event for year-round extracurricular coding clubs such as CoderDojo and Code Club; it's a means to encourage youth to progress with their learning and their creations. Jobs of the future will increasingly rely on 21st-century skills, especially technology literacy - Coolest Projects motivates kids to pursue their passion for technology and expand their skills.
