Discovery challenges (ages 10-14)

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 .
