Typically completed by 10-14 year olds, students work collaboratively on a five hour project or challenge in self-managed groups. During the project, they use a CREST Discovery passport to record and reflect on their work. Afterwards, students communicate their findings as a group presentation.
Each pack provides teaching guides, kit lists, example timetables and suggested starter activities to help you run your day. Find out more about CREST Discovery Awards.
There are more CREST approved resources that have been developed by our partners and providers specific to your region.

Machine learning now answers Case study 2 - A.I. duet 1. Data (input): The user plays a tune. The machine stores information about which tunes people like and the tunes they have been playing. 2. Machine learning algorithm (process) It looks for patterns in what rhythms and melodies people like and play. It uses this information to compose a tune to play back to the user. 3. Hypothesis (output): The machine plays a tune back to the user. 4. Performance (test): The user listens to the tune and gives it a rating to show how much they like it. 5. Feedback: The machine rates its own performance based on how long people listen to the tune and how highly they rate it.
