CREST Awards: Bronze Grand Challenges!
If you’re a teacher looking for inspiration for the upcoming year, CREST offers an amazing range of resources for ages 5-19!
For secondary students, the Bronze Grand Challenges are a great place to start. Over the course of the project, teams of students design their own investigation, record their findings, and reflect on their learnings. This process gives students a taste of what it is like to be a scientist or engineer in the real-world.
“The Industrial Strategy sets out Grand Challenges to put the UK at the forefront of the industries of the future, ensuring that the UK takes advantage of major global changes, improving people’s lives and the country’s productivity.”
The first 4 Grand Challenges are focused on the global trends which will transform our future:
- Artificial Intelligence and data
- ageing society
- clean growth
- future of mobility
It’s all about developing ideas to make a difference and inspiring the next generation of STEM experts!
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
