Fantastic news – All About STEM are now the North West Regional CREST Support Organisation!
The CREST Awards scheme is the British Science Association’s flagship programme for young people, providing a flexible STEM project framework that inspires and engages 5 to 19 year olds. The CREST Awards scheme has a longstanding legacy, with the BSA celebrating 30 years of CREST in 2017.
During a CREST Award project, students take on the roles of scientists, researchers, engineers and designers to pursue their own ideas. It is the antithesis of ‘recipe’-style science. No CREST project is identical. Even when set the same brief, students produce unique, creative solutions and ideas to tackle the problem.
As North West Regional CREST Support Organisation we’re here to promote CREST Awards across the region and offer schools & clubs all the support they need to run this amazing scheme.
We can provide information, link you up with activity providers, advise on funding and connect you with mentors.
We will also be working with businesses, STEM & educational organisations and colleges & universities to integrate CREST into their outreach programmes and become accredited providers.
