Recognising CREST participation

We really value the support that teachers and schools give to their CREST students.  Each academic year, we celebrate active participation in CREST by sending certificates of recognition to teachers and schools.  

CREST participation logo

You can copy the CREST participation logo below and add it to your school website, along with any photos of your students doing their CREST projects!

Showcase your students’ work

In the summer term, Big Bang Near Me Fairs are a great chance for students to present their project work and take part in the regional heats of the National Science + Engineering Competition.  Your students will have the opportunity to build their communication skills, meet like-minded students from across your region and find out more about STEM careers.  To find out more, click here
