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.
Official Creativity case studies The Creativity Case Studies in your student guide show several different examples of innovative projects, from visitor attractions to interactive art installations. TASK: Choose 2 of the case studies from your student pack and discuss the different projects in your team: • How did the project combine the arts with STEM? • The aim of these projects was to be unforgettable, open, original and optimistic - do you think they succeeded? Why/why not? • How was new talent showcased?
Official UNBOXED Creations – the challenge TASK: Your team challenge is to create your own UNBOXED Creation that celebrates innovation and creativity. Your idea MUST: • Be an unforgettable experience • Draw on expertise from science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) • Represent the arts, as well as two other STEM sectors. Your idea could: • Include people who don’t normally get to be involved • Include people working together in ways you wouldn’t expect e.g. a mathematician and a sculpture artist • Celebrate your local area • Focus on educating people about a specific topic
