CREST Awards: Practical Action Home Learning
Are you looking for activities that will engage your children aged 5-16 years whilst they are learning at home?
Practical action have brought together a collection of fantastic home learning resources to inspire you and your children during the lockdown period. Each activity links to areas of the formal curriculum in the UK and gives your children the opportunity to learn about real world issues.
The practical action STEM challenges are their most popular activities as they engage children in developing their own solutions for real life problems. For example the Floating garden challenge invites children to make a model of a garden that floats so that farmers can grow crops on flooded land.
All can be used to gain a CREST Award, go to the CREST website to find out more.
As North West Regional CREST Support Organisation, All About STEM promote CREST Awards across the region and point schools & clubs to the support they need to run this amazing scheme. CREST Awards encourage students to work like scientists, researchers, engineers and designers to investigate and explore their own project ideas.« Back To News
