Sign up to CREST Awards – to inspire young people

CREST is a nationally recognised scheme for student-led project work in the STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths). And if you sign your pupils up (only £1 per child for KS1/2 levels) you gain access to activities and project ideas for a range of ages, group size and abilities.

From off-the-shelf, one-hour long challenges through to large-scale, student-led projects of over 70 hours work or more, CREST can be done by anyone.

Star and SuperStar are the levels designed to be easy-to-run and low-cost for children typically aged 5-7 and 7-11 years. Children gain an Award by completing eight challenges, which are available to download from our resource library.We also provide helpful tips sheets for you to use, explaining the scientific themes and offering guidance on conversation topics for your children.
You can download CREST Star and SuperStar passport templates for your students to track their progress once you create your account. Within four weeks of completion, you will receive certificates and fabric badges to give out to your class.
