CREST Awards

Gain a CREST award using Practical Action's resources

We have worked with the British Science Association to ensure a number of our resources can be used to help pupils achieve a British Science Association CREST Award. Awards are available at different levels and suitable for pupils at both primary and secondary.  They can be used to enter major competitions such as the Big Bang Fair.  

Our materials are based around Practical Action’s work, which uses science and technology to address global issues such as energy, water and food.  They give students a real insight into how science and technology can be used to tackle challenges faced by communities in the developing world, and how they can be part of the solution.  The material are strongly linked to the Global Goals or Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Details of the CREST award scheme and how to get involved can be found on the CREST Awards website 

To find out which of our material are suitable for which level of CREST please follow the links below.
