The world’s leading technology fair for young people!
Coolest Projects, on Saturday 2 March, 10.30am – 3.30pm at The Sharp Project, Thorp Road, Manchester, M40 5BJ, gives young people the chance to showcase the great ideas they have created. This free event inspires and rewards innovation, creativity, entrepreneurship, and technology skills.
At Coolest Projects, young makers share their projects with fellow creators and the public, and they explore each others’ work. Outstanding entries can win awards in five different categories. All Coolest Projects events are free for young people to enter or attend, giving more of them the opportunity to become inspired to create with technology.
