Liberty Global and Virgin Media Ireland are proud sponsors of CoderDojo’s ‘Coolest Projects’ event for the past 5 years. The yearly event takes place in Dublin and brings together young people from all over the world, giving them the platform to showcase their innovative tech projects.
The Future Makers Awards encourages young people to take an active role in their communities by challenging them to use their digital skills to come up with tech-based solutions that answer society’s pressing issues.
In 2017 the winner of the Future Makers Awards was Jeroen, from Belgium, who developed the ‘Welcome Here’ app that facilitates refugee integration in the community. The app provides a step by step checklist with key information they need to get started in a new country.
CoderDojo Coolest Projects is a world leading showcase that inspires the next generation of digital creators, innovators, change makers and entrepreneurs. The CoderDojo Coolest Projects Showcase offers young people from the international CoderDojo Community the opportunity to present the projects they have created at their local CoderDojo. It is both a competition and exhibition to showcase, inspire and enable innovation, creativity, entrepreneurship and technology skills in youth innovators aged 7 – 17.
