NEW CREST Bronze Award: Disease, Development & Diagnostics
If you’re looking for a new STEM project for your learners, take a look at the NEW Bronze Award from CREST!
Bronze Awards are typically completed by students aged 11+. They complete a ten-hour project which is a perfect introduction to STEM project work. When completing this award, 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 topic of disease, development and diagnostics was inspired by research from the Nuffield Department of Women’s & Reproductive Health and the Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics.
“Each of the six project briefs sets the scene for students to explore a range of diagnostic tools and interventions that help detect and improve health conditions. The students have the opportunity to develop their own pathway through their project to produce an outcome. Whether an education or public health campaign, scientific research and/or designing a toy for a toddler, they all have the common aim of improving health outcomes and quality of life for many people.”
Encourage your students to investigate common health issues and develop solutions that address health concerns!
This new Bronze Award pack includes project ideas to suit a range of interests.
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
