CREST: Secondary – Bronze Award

CREST Bronze Awards introduce students to project work empowering them to work like real scientists, technologists, engineers or mathematicians. Students choose their own topic and methodologies, giving them complete freedom over their work.

Students work independently or in groups to plan and run a project addressing a real-world STEM problem.

  • Bronze Awards involve a minimum of 10 hours of work on one project area 
  • They use scientific and/or technical knowledge appropriate to students aged 11 to 14 
  • Students share their project outcomes with their peers (e.g. display, assembly, poster) 
  • Learners have active support from an educator: guiding students but allowing them to make decisions for themselves, reviewing progress regularly and supporting planning to maintain the pace of progress 

If you’re a teacher, you can discover how simple it is to run CREST in school via CREST’s ‘Getting Started’ guides and new webinar!

Levels: CREST covers all ages from 5 – 19
