British Science Association - CREST Awards
CREST is a UK award scheme that recognises success, and enables students to build their skills and demonstrate personal achievement in project work. It offers educators an easy-to-run framework for curriculum enhancement and is student-led, encouraging young people to take ownership of their own projects.
Each year, over 30,000 CREST Awards are undertaken by 5-to-19-year-olds, giving them opportunities to explore real-world science, technology, engineering and maths projects in an exciting way.
The British Science Association is piloting a new programme to enable and encourage students from all backgrounds to participate in the CREST Awards scheme for underrepresented audiences. Funding is available to support and enable schools and organisations to run CREST Awards with young people underrepresented in STEM. Who can apply?
You must apply on behalf of a school or organisation to run CREST Awards in the United Kingdom. Participating students will be aged 5-19 years. In Scotland, you must have over 30% of pupils living in the top 20% most deprived areas according to the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation.
