Description

The world's leading technology fair for young people!

Coolest Projects 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.

Final admission is 2.00pm.

Our hosts at Coolest Projects UK 2019:


Maddie Moate is a YouTube filmmaker and BAFTA award winning presenter, passionate about curiosity. She has been presenting popular science and tech content online for the past 6 years and has amassed over 18 million views on her YouTube films across multiple channels.

One of the only female “Edu-tubers” in the UK, Maddie also has her own successful YouTube channel. Here she makes films which combines the traditional YouTube style with educational content. Her videos aim to inspire a new audience to stay curious, adventurous and encourage science engagement.

Since 2016, Maddie has hosted the hit Cbeebies series Do You Know?, which sees her explore the workings of everyday objects by asking how they are made or work, all made possible with special cameras and animations. In 2017, Maddie triumphed in the presenter category at the BAFTA Children’s Awards and has since starred in the Cbeebies Christmas Show in both 2017 and 2018.

She has also hosted Springwatch Wild Academy (BBC), Cloud Challenge (CNBC) and items for This Morning (ITV).

On Radio he’s hosted the drive-time show for Heart and is now presenting his new BBC Radio 4 series “The Best Thing Since Sliced Bread?”.

On YouTube Greg has racked up more than 25million views answering curious questions, and on Stage he’s had his own nationwide theatre tour and performed spectacular science shows around the world.
