Teaching resources

CREST is a nationally recognised scheme for student-led project work in the STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths) and is managed by the British Science Association.

Resources are readily and freely available on the CREST Awards website.

There are a number of activities and project ideas for a range of ages, group size and abilities. These could be one-hour long challenges through to large-scale, student-led projects of over 70 hours work (or more!)

You do not need to sign up to access the resources – just follow the get started links until you get to 'our resource library' (e.g. 'Primary challenges')
