CREST Awards FREE in Wales for another year!
We are thrilled to share the news that the Welsh Government have confirmed that they will fund all Discovery, Bronze, Silver and Gold CREST Awards in Wales until at least March 31st 2020, as they have done for the past few years.
CREST is a nationally recognised scheme for student-led project work in the STEM subjects that inspires young people to think and behave like scientists and engineers.
CREST provides activities and project ideas for a range of ages, group size and abilities. From off-the-shelf, one-hour long challenges through to large-scale, student-led projects of over 70 hours work or more, CREST can be done by anyone. The CREST Awards funded by the Welsh Government are aimed at young people aged between 10 and 19 years. They can be done in schools - as part of lessons or as STEM Club activities - in youth groups or by individuals. There are downloadable projects or design your own.
Chemistry in the Community
See Science will be offering Community Groups such as Brownies, Guides, Scouts, Urdd, and Youth Clubs the opportunity to take part in a free Chemistry workshop between 1 March and 30 June. The workshop will offer a carousel of 4 different activities which will focus on the Chemistry of the High Street and will also provide an opportunity for leaders to encourage young people to participate in a CREST Award if they wish. All materials will be provided free of charge.
For more information about booking a Chemistry in the Community workshop please contact Llinos at email@example.com

Six exciting new STEM Clubs resources are here!
How can STEM help us survive and thrive? Have your students ever wondered about the earth’s wild and wonderful weather? How about the science involved in surviving an asteroid impact?
These are just a few of the questions posed by an exciting new set of STEM Clubs resources.
The six resources are free to download, and have been developed specifically with club leaders to provide engaging and easy-to-use material to STEM Clubs around the country.

The six new resources are:
· Extreme elements (7-9 years)

· Survive an asteroid impact (11-14 years)
· Survive on a desert island (11-14 years)
