Science investigations

CREST Star activities focus on hands-on investigation

Hands-on learning and fun

CREST Star activties are a great fun way to learn

Taking science outside

Many of the activities are perfect for the outdoor classroom

Engaging young learners

CREST Star engages children through real life context set in a story and supported by Concept Cartoons created by Millgate House Education with the input of teachers to ensure they are great resources

You don't have to be a scientist...

In fact, you don't even have to be a teacher! Full notes are provided as part of the resources including a list of everything you need to for the activity.

Encouraging independent learning

Children are encouraged to work independently of adults and come up with their own investigations

Exciting partnerships

You can work towards your your CREST Star awards with activities and workshops at some of the UK's most exciting science learning centres

More than just science...

CREST Star activties include investigations into other STEM subjects such as Design & Technology, and cross curricular links to Maths and English
