Take a look at these FIVE resources to support your Code Club to get involved with Coolest Projects Global, an international celebration of technology!
Coolest Projects Global is the world’s leading technology showcase for young people. It’s an opportunity for your coders to share their tech creations with the world in the Coolest Projects online gallery.
Registration is open! All levels, programme languages, and stages of projects are welcome. The Coolest Projects team has released a collection of new resources to support educators and participants for this year’s global showcase.
The coolest resources
Our mentor plan will help you support young people through their Coolest Projects journey.
This plan will cover all the important stages, from idea generation to project registration. At each step, we share the skills that coders will develop and tips to make sure they are all set to share their creations at Coolest Projects Global
We have session plans to help you lead a Code Club session on creating something for Coolest Projects.
The session plans will support you to tell your young people all about Coolest Projects, as well as how to design, debug, and register a project. Remember: Young people can enter any tech project they like, including a very simple Scratch project.
This youth workbook will help your young creators:
- Explore ideas
- Develop their design thinking
- Stay focused on making a cool project they can share with others
Coolest Projects Global is a celebration, which is why we make sure every participant is celebrated!
Every participant is eligible to receive digital or physical swag, and everyone will get feedback on their projects from our awesome judges. There are also prizes for the judges’ favourite projects, which will be announced at the online celebration in June.
If you need some help to get your coders started, why not check out our project library? We’ve got over 200 projects, for all levels of experience and covering a wide range of topics. Our projects have even been translated into over 28 languages.
We have projects organised into paths to help coders develop their skills, knowledge, and independence as they create cool projects.
We’d love to see how your coders add their own personal style to these projects in their entries for Coolest Projects Global.

Young creators have until 11 May to submit their creations. If you need any further support, check out the FAQ webpage. Make sure you share your progress on Twitter using the hashtag #CoolestProjects.
