CREST Home Learning Projects

There is a new collection of CREST challenges and project ideas that have been selected from the CREST Resource Library to be used at home with parental support or set as teacher facilitated distance learning projects.

There are projects to suit every age and level, from Foundation to A level, on a wide range of STEM topics.

Primary activities have been written for non-science specialists so are suitable for use by teachers and parents alike.

At secondary level, each project brief has an overall challenge, ideas for getting started and resources you might need. Read the health and safety section carefully before you begin. Young people should create a plan for their project and a risk assessment before they begin any practical activity. You can use the CLEAPSS student safety sheets to help them.

Find a host of ideas here.
