Festive Fun from CREST

We thought that it would be a bit of festive fun to produce some old-school paper chains for CREST schools and STEM clubs to use around their labs and Christmas trees this December.

The paper chains are decorated in typical CREST style with some science and maths based ‘chain’ related facts. There is also space for your students to write their own project ideas for the New Year!

You can download the template HERE

Competition: Tweet us pictures of your CREST paper chains, either in your labs, on trees or anywhere you like – we just want to see what you have written and how long you can make your chains! (tweet us @CRESTAwards)

End of term challenge – why not get your students into small teams and test their delegation and team working by challenging them to make the longest paper chain in 5 minutes. A great ice-breaker or end of term bit of fun for the classroom.
