Secondary Science: CREST Curriculum Mapping

To help teachers across the UK to embed interactive STEM learning within lessons, the British Science Association (BSA) is offering a free resource that maps practical CREST projects onto the science curriculum.

Entitled Investigative Practical Science in the Curriculum: Making it Happen, this mapping resource is an essential tool for any secondary science teacher looking to rejuvenate their lessons with open-ended, extended investigative STEM projects.

Supporting this guidance are easy-to-use, free-to-download mapping workbooks, which match individual BronzeSilver and Gold CREST Award projects with each area of the secondary science curricula for England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

You can download and save your own copy of the relevant mapping workbook via the following links: 

CREST Awards

CREST helps young people aged 5-19 to become independent and reflective learners through enquiry-based project work. CREST Awards can be run in schools, clubs or at home and are flexible and cost-effective. With no set timetable, projects can start whenever you want, and take as long as you need.

CREST Bronze Award: 10 hours in total
CREST Silver Award: 30 hours in total
CREST Gold Award: 70 hours in total
CREST Discovery Day: Can be completed in a day (5 hours equivalent)

If you have any questions about secondary-level CREST, or if you are a teacher who can share your experience of running CREST Awards during lesson time, please contact [email protected]

As North West Regional CREST Support OrganisationAll 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.
