CREST AWARDS
Open to schools across Hertfordshire, Luton and the South East.

CREST Awards are run nationally by the British Science Association, and STEMPOINT is proud to be the Regional CREST Support Organisation for the East of England.

Typically completed by 5-11 year olds, CREST Star and Superstar challenges relate to everyday experiences. Children complete eight activities to gain a CREST Award, with each activity taking between 45 -60 minutes to complete.

The activities are designed to be easy-to-run and low cost. You don’t need to be a teacher, have a science background or have access to specialist equipment to run them. The packs contain helpful hints and tips for you to use, explaining the scientific themes and offering guidance on conversation topics for your children.

You can find helpful resources and ideas on the website too, so why not encourage your pupils to tap into their creativity and curiosity and complete their own investigations!
