More about CREST awards

CREST is a nationally recognised scheme for student-led project work in the STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths), that inspires young people to think and behave like scientists and engineers.

CREST Awards provide teachers and home educators with simple and adaptable activities aligned to the national curriculum, and give young people aged 5–19 the chance to choose their own subject and methodology when completing their hands-on investigation.
