EDT – Go4SET

Award Level Silver

In Go4Set, run by EDT, teams of students in Year 8/9 & S2 (12-14 year olds) are linked with employers and universities and take part in a 10 week science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) project.

How to achieve a CREST Silver Award

At the beginning of the project you must enter your students for the CREST Silver Award by contacting your EDT CREST local coordinator. They will also liaise with you to make sure that your project meets the CREST criteria.
 Remember that for your Celebration and Assessment Day (CAD), you will need to send to your local EDT CREST representative, electronic copies of:

  • your project report
  • your Go4SET CREST checklist
  • a personal appendix for each student.

If these documents are not received by EDT´s submission deadline, your CREST assessor may not be able to complete assessment of your project at the CAD. This will create work for you and delay the outcome. If you have any questions contact CREST@britishscienceassociation.org
 
These documents will be sent to you once you register for your CREST award:

  • Go4SET teacher guide
  • Go4SET team guide 
  • Go4SET CREST checklist
