CREST: Discovery Awards (Ages 10-14)
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 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.
Students develop team-work and hands-on investigative skills. After successfully completing the project, students receive a personalised certificate.
Samples of students’ work and key information are uploaded via the online platform.
Discovery Awards are assessed by a teacher or group leader, usually at the end of the day.
You can download ready-made Discovery Award plans from the CREST resource library.
Discovery Awards are aimed at students age 10-14 and take approximately 5 hours to complete.
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
