About CREST Awards

What are CREST Awards?

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.

CREST gives students the chance to participate in hands-on science through investigations and enquiry-based learning. It can be run in schools, clubs, youth groups, other organisations or at home. They are well regarded, high quality and a tangible recognition of success.

There are five CREST Award Levels, allowing students to progress through the scheme throughout their education.

My Stem Club were assessed for their Bronze Award and had so much pride when they got it! The assessor was impressed at the skills they had learned in communication and facing challenges. The whole experience is so valuable!

The whole experience was amazing – I got a real feel for what working in a science setting is like.
