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.

A luminous blue cycling

A luminous blue cycling strip can be found near Lidzbark Warminski in Poland. It is made from a synthetic material that can give out light for up to ten hours at a time once charged by the sun throughout the day. Testing is still taking place on the sustainability of the material and how to make it as cost-effective as possible.

To celebrate the launch of retail giant John Lewis's Cardiff store, three large-scale model replicas of a handbag were created. They were placed around Cardiff City Centre for the public to view. The patterns of the crocodile skin in this large-scale handbag were carved from high density foam before being completely covered in fibreglass. The shape, size, colour and texture of the bags was accurately replicated for all the models. Main materials: Fibreglass and high-density foam Cultural case study Key facts Indoor/outdoor: Outdoors Size: 4.5m tall Duration: Temporary Moving parts: No Interactive: No Location: Cardiff, Wales
