British Science Association - CREST for underrepresented audiences


CREST offers educators an easy-to-run framework for curriculum enhancement and is student-led, encouraging young people to take ownership of their own projects. CREST can be run in schools, clubs, youth groups, other organisations or at home.

If registration and support costs are a barrier to running CREST, grants (plus voucher codes to cover the cost of CREST award fees) are now available to support and enable schools and organisations to run CREST Awards with young people underrepresented in STEM.

This funding can be used for resources to support the CREST Award projects. These could be

  • consumables, equipment, field trips, speakers or other costs of activities.
  • supply costs and CPD directly linked to the CREST Awards project.
