CREST Award project resources

This section contains a host of inspirational project ideas to help you get going at All CREST Award levels (Discovery, Bronze, Silver and Gold)

Project ideas could come from a variety of sources. A teacher or parent could create their own ideas or let their students answer their own questions, or maybe partner with a local company or university.

On this page we have those you can just pick-up and run with and those that stimulate ideas on specific topics (remember, you can change projects as you see fit).
