CREST: Discovery Awards in a Day!

CREST Discovery Awards are aimed at students aged 10-14 and take approximately 5 hours to complete – they’re fantastic for STEM Clubs or a STEM Day! 

CREST Discovery Awards offer an introduction to real project work and give students the freedom to run their own investigations in self-managed groups.

See how much fun you can have, take a look at Queen’s Park High School’s amazing projects or our Discovery Day photo galleries!

CREST Discovery

How it works:

The Challenge
Students work together to solve a challenge with minimal adult intervention. Then students present their work.

The Outcome
Students develop teamwork and hands-on investigative skills. After successfully completing the project, students receive a CREST certificate.

Project Submission
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 Discovery Award resources and guides from the CREST resource library.
