Engineering Education Scheme (EES)

Engineering Education Scheme (England & Scotland) - real life six-month STEM projects for Year 12 (16-17yr old) students.
At the beginning of the project you must register your project(s) by contacting your EDT CREST local coordinator who will send you the student registration upload template. They will liaise with you to make sure your project meets the CREST criteria.

During the project you can contact your EDT CREST representative if you have any questions. For the Celebration and Assessment Day (CAD) you will need to submit to your CREST representative electronic copies of:
  • your project report; 
  • your EES CREST checklist; 
  • a personal appendix for each student. 
If these are not received by EDT´s submission deadline, your CREST assessor may not complete assessment of your project at the CAD. This will create work for you and delay the outcome. If you have any questions contact CREST@britishscienceassociation.org

These documents will be sent to you once you register for your CREST award:
  • Go4SET teacher guide (download pdf here)
  • EDT team guide (download pdf here)
