About CREST Awards from the British Science Association
Science Award schemes encourage students to excel in STEM subjects by offering them the opportunity to work toward nationally recognised certificates. Students enjoy participating in fun and challenging projects which explore interesting subjects and build upon their classroom learning and activities.
CREST Awards (CREativity in Science and Technology) are a scheme run by the British Science Association to encourage students aged 11 to 19 in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). Students typically take part in projects which allow them to explore these subjects in a detailed and enjoyable way whilst working towards nationally recognised certificates at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels.
CREST Star Instigators
CREST Star Investigators is the new CREST award scheme for primary schools and is aimed at students from 5 to 12 years old. Students work on small projects and activities which count towards Star, SuperStar and MegaStar Award certificates and badges. The focus is on thinking about, talking about and doing science and the scheme provides smooth transition into the Secondary level CREST Awards
