Typically completed by 10-14 year olds (Key Stages 2 and 3), students work collaboratively on a five hour project or challenge in self-managed groups. They record and reflect on their work during the project, using a CREST Discovery passport, and communicate their findings as a group presentation.
Each pack below provides teaching guides, kit lists, example timetables and suggested starter activities to help you run your day. Find out more about this level on the Discovery page .

Looking forward to Bronze Other guides available Now that you and your students have finished Discovery, why not move onto CREST’s secondary stage and complete a CREST Bronze Award? Bronze projects are typically undertaken by 11-to- 14-year-olds and take 10 hours to complete. They are ideal for students who want to have a bit more control over their project and start working more independently. Bronze Awards are also well suited to after-school clubs to be completed throughout a school term.
