Enter an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) for a CREST Award
If your students are working towards an Extended Project Qualification in an area related to science, technology, engineering or maths, they can gain extra recognition for their work by entering your project for a CREST Gold Award.
There’s a lot of similarity between the EPQ and CREST Gold. Both involve extended independent research into a student’s chosen topic. Students also need to write up a report, and deliver a presentation about their work.
