There are a number of ways volunteers can get involved with CREST.

CREST Youth Panel

If you have a CREST Award and are aged 13-19, you can volunteer on our CREST Youth Panel. The panel meets twice a year at large science events across the UK to reflect and input into the CREST scheme's projects and those of our partners.  We need your voice to ensure we keep projects that involve you relevant.  Interested students need to nominate themselves for this volunteer opportunity and can do so by contacting the Education Team

CREST Teacher Advisory Network

Teachers are invited to become a voluntary member of our CREST Teacher Advisory Network. Your feedback and experience will help to deliver an Award scheme that supports teachers and understands the education and STEM landscape of the schools it engages with. For more information about the network please contact the Education Team.

Mentoring CREST projects

STEM professionals can mentor young people undertaking CREST projects. Would you like to give an inspiring talk or get hands on with a club activity or offer a short work placement for a young person? Opportunities are managed through the STEM ambassador scheme and your CREST local coordinator. Contact the Education Team for more details.
