Discovery challenges (ages 10-14)

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.

5 Worksheet: evaluating the work of others Imagine you work for a charity that gives organisations funding for hygiene projects. You want to choose the best organisation and give them money to build hand washing devices in 10 primary schools and produce education materials for their pupils.

Teamwork – Did they have different roles but still collaborate and listen to each other’s point of view? Did most or all the team contribute? Research – Before starting on the design did they do any research into the problems caused by poor sanitation? Did they put their research to good use by incorporating it into the education materials? Designing - Did they produce a good initial design before they started building their hand washing model? Did they modify it after testing? Is their final design easy to understand? Model – How creative was their model? Did they use sustainable materials where possible? Did they stick to the budget? How well did it do in the test? Education materials – Think about what information they communicated and how they did it. Are the materials creative and engaging? Are they suitable for 8-11 year olds? Group name Teamwork Research Designing Model Education Materials Total The group you would give the funding to is ………………………………………………………
