CREST Awards: Run a Discovery Day in School
CREST Discovery Awards offer an introduction to real project work and give students the freedom to run their own investigations. They can be completed in one day, with students (11-14) working together in self-managed groups.
Students work in groups to solve a STEM challenge, or challenges, with minimal adult intervention. Then students present their work.
