            CREST Awards – new online entry system

            Many of you will have run CREST Awards with your students before, registering through your CREST Local Coordinator. You can now enter, pay, assess projects and request certificates all through a new online system. We hope this will make the process faster and easier for educators.


            Enter CREST Awards: from September 2017, to enter your students for a CREST Award you should sign up for a free online account. Simply create a project, add students to it, and upload a sample of their work. Assessment and feedback for Silver and Gold Awards will now also be completed online by trained CREST assessors according to their subject specialism.


            Looking for support? Educators and students looking for direct support should now go directly to the CREST Help Centre where they will be able to find answers to FAQs, or contact CREST Support directly.


            The CREST Awards 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. CREST gives students the chance to participate in hands-on science through investigations and enquiry-based learning, supporting them to solve real-life STEM challenges through practical investigation and discussion.


            There are six CREST Award Levels, allowing students to progress through the scheme throughout their education. CREST offers educators an easy-to-run framework for curriculum enhancement and is student-led, encouraging young people to take ownership of their own projects. The Awards are well regarded, high quality and a tangible recognition of success. CREST can be run in schools, clubs, youth groups, other organisations or at home.
