I’m Maria Rossini, Head of Education.

I oversee the Education team, and our work with educators, young people, and their parents and guardians. This includes our flagship young people’s CREST Awards scheme and the schools’ resources for British Science Week.

I regularly present at events and conferences, as well as contribute to blogs and articles, and am passionate about equity in education.

Ask me about strategy, funding our education vision, authentic learning experiences, Science Capital, STEM equity, speaking engagements, or partnership opportunities with CREST or British Science Week. (She/her/hers)

I'm Estelle Whewell, CREST Product & Partnerships Manager.

Being a science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) engagement professional, I enjoy developing partnerships and innovative programmes of activities that enable young people from all backgrounds and abilities to find the inspiration, skills, and confidence to pursue STEM career pathways.

I strongly believe that by working together, we can support young people’s progression, celebrate their achievements, and empower them to make a difference. Be it in their own lives, or their communities - contributing to the world at large.

So please contact me to discuss how the CREST Awards scheme could provide your organisation with a trusted framework and resources to connect young people, from the ages of 5 - 19 years old, to ‘real world STEM’.(She/her/hers)

I’m Cristine Alcantara, Education Manager.

I'm committed to providing a rockstar CREST Awards customer service. I mostly work on supporting stakeholders with their general queries about CREST projects including application, submission, payment, assessment, all the way to certificate delivery. I also enjoy working on organising entries for the annual poster competition.

Ask me about the CREST Awards process, missing certificates, or the poster competition. If you have suggestions for how we could improve our CREST Awards process, you are most welcome to let me know. (She/her/hers)
