Now in it's fifth year, Coolest Projects, which started in DCU by ex-CA graduate Noel King, has ballooned in a spectacular showcase of almost 700 projects comprising of robots, gadgets, games, blogs and websites designed by coders between the ages of seven and 17. The School of Computing had 4 academics judging at it, with Dr. Mark Roantree having a hectic day as overall Judging Co-ordinator.

Alex O'Connor from the School of Computing said "As a first-time judge the scale of the event was almost overwhelming. The category which I looked at included many technically impressive challenges, and the entrants were all bright, enthusiastic, and suitably proud of their hard work. I suspect many of them have bright futures in technology"
