CREST Awards: thirty inspirational ideas

30 inspirational ideas for science gathers some of the best STEM ideas from the last 30 years, some of which are CREST projects, some of which are just great ideas.  The main themes of the activities are:

  • Interacting with researchers
  • Mixing science and art
  • Creating new media
  • Using ICT
  • Getting hands-on
  • Learning outside the classroom

Each year, over 32,000 CREST Awards are undertaken by students aged 11 to 19, giving them opportunities to explore real-world science, technology, engineering and mathematics projects in an exciting way. CREST is a UK-wide Award scheme that recognises success, and enables students to build their skills in project work. It offers educators an easy-to-run framework for curriculum enhancement and is student-led, which means that young people take ownership of their projects.  Many of the activities in this booklet can count towards CREST Awards.
