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.
Project work Experience plan Use the template below to guide your experience planning. Arts How does your experience represent the arts? STEM Which two STEM sectors are represented in your experience? Expertise How are these two STEM sectors represented? New talent Are there any people involved who would not normally be? If so, who and how? Collaboration Did people have to work together in unexpected ways to create your experience? How? Reach Consider your audience, and what their interests are. How might you want to reach them? Materials Thinking of your answers above, what materials will you need to reach your audience? E.g a short video for social media will require an app and video editing equipment; you may need art supplies for a poster to place in a local shop. Marketing 20
Presentations Imagine the head of UNBOXED has invited you to present your UNBOXED Creation idea to them in the form of a five-minute presentation. You will need to demonstrate teamwork, presentation skills, entrepreneurship and of course creativity. For your presentation you will need to include: • your mood board • your idea, and why you chose it • who is your target audience? • how are you combining the arts with other STEM disciplines? • what STEM expertise are you using? • OPTIONAL: Additional illustrations, visual aids, physical model or slides. Good Luck! 21
