CREST Awards Help Centre

            How do CREST Awards work?

            CREST is easy to run, and you can adapt the framework for many different settings: the classroom, a club, a youth group, or at home. 

            • Start by choosing an Award level: Star, SuperStar, Discovery, Bronze, Silver or Gold. The amount and complexity of the work needed to gain an award increase at each level.

            • Students pick a single project or series of challenges that will allow them to meet the criteria for their selected Award level. These projects can be around any STEM topic or theme. We have lots of fun, engaging and rewarding project ideas that you can use if you want inspiration.

            • Guide your students through the project - we have lots of resources available to help you with this step. 
            • For Star, SuperStar, Discovery and Bronze awards, you assess your students' work and confirm that it meets the CREST criteria. For Silver and Gold Awards, you will need to send in your students' work for assessment.
            • To receive your award certificates, you need to enter your students for their Awards and pay their entry fees. For Silver and Gold Awards, you need to pay the entry fees before we can assess a project.
