What is CREST?
CREST is a scheme that inspires young people to think and behave like scientists and engineers.
CREST is a nationally recognised scheme for student-led project work in the STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths).
CREST gives young people aged 5–19 the chance to choose their own subject and methodology when completing their hands-on investigation.
A consistent and high standard of assessment and moderation is achieved for the scheme via our network of industry experts from the STEM and education sectors. It has been running since 1986 and sees tens of thousands of young people taking part each year.
CREST provides activities and project ideas for a range of ages, group size and abilities. From off-the-shelf, one-hour long challenges through to large-scale, student-led projects of over 70 hours work or more, CREST can be done by anyone.
The British Science Association
The British Science Association coordinates, delivers and oversees a number of different projects and programmes aimed at engaging more people with science. They work across the UK through their network of regional branches and by building partnerships with national and local organisations that match their vision of a world where science is seen as a fundamental part of culture and society.
