CREST Awards in the South West

A CREST what?

The CREST Awards scheme is the British Science Association’s flagship programme for young people, providing science enrichment activities to inspire and engage 5-to-19-year olds. It is the only nationally recognised accreditation scheme for project work in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects.

Things are changing….

STEMworks are happy to be the regional coordinators for the South West region, which stretches from Gloucestershire to Cornwall.  We would like teachers, Scout and Guide leaders, home schoolers and others to take advantage of the CREST Awards and opportunities.  To find out more, click here.

Under the previous system, STEMworks would assess the CREST Awards in the area and guide teachers through the administration and applications process.  We are still assessing awards but much of the system is online…. it is very straightforward!  We are on hand for guidance if required, but all the required information is online.

Happy CRESTing for 2017/18!
