Links and Resources

CREST Star Investigators

CREST Star Investigators is a UK-wide award scheme, run by the British Science Association that enables children to solve scientific problems through practical investigation. The activities focus on thinking about, talking about, and doing science. They are designed to be used primarily outside of class time and a science background is not needed to run them, as full notes are provided as part of the resources.
