At Home or Summer Clubs: Complete a CREST Award over the Summer!
Are you running a summer club in the 6 weeks holiday or looking for a fun, rewarding activity at home? If you would like to run CREST Awards, CREST can give you all the advice and support you’ll need to run a creative project this summer!
The CREST Awards scheme is the British Science Association’s flagship programme for young people, providing a flexible STEM project framework that inspires and engages 5 to 19 year olds. The CREST Awards scheme has a longstanding legacy, with the BSA celebrating 30 years of CREST in 2017.
During a CREST Award project, children and young people can take on the roles of scientists, researchers, engineers and designers to pursue their own ideas. It is the antithesis of ‘recipe’-style science. No CREST project is identical. Even when set the same brief, students produce unique, creative solutions and ideas to tackle the problem.
CREST can be run in schools, clubs, youth groups, other organisations or at home.
