Home learning projects


These CREST challenges and project ideas have been selected from our library to be used at home with parental support or set as teacher facilitated distance learning projects.

Find out more about the different CREST Award levels here: CREST Awards.

At secondary level, each project brief has an overall challenge, ideas for getting started and resources you might need. Read the health and safety section carefully before you begin. Young people should create a plan for their project and a risk assessment before they begin any practical activity. You can use the CLEAPSS student safety sheets to help them.

If you need some help getting started, check out the CREST at home section of the Help Centre here.

Challenges for ages 5-11


These challenges take about an hour each. Once you have completed eight of them you can get a CREST SuperStar Award. Start by downloading the Passport. Children can use this to record each activity they complete.

Each challenge has an organiser card and an activity card. All the instructions to set up the activity are in the organiser card. Read the 'watch out' section carefully before you begin. Children can use the activity card or you can read it through together.

Projects for ages 11-18


Here you will find ideas for completing a STEM project at home. Each of these projects takes about ten - thirty hours to complete. Once your child has completed their project they can get a CREST Bronze or Silver Award. Start by downloading the Bronze Workbook or Profile Form. Young people can use these to help them complete their project and record their progress.

Each project brief has an overall challenge, ideas for getting started and resources you might need. Read the health and safety section carefully before you begin. Young people should create a plan for their project and a risk assessment before they begin any practical activity. You can use the CLEAPSS student safety sheets to help them.

For Bronze projects, once your child has completed their project, you can sign up to assess it and order their personalised certificate here. For Silver projects your child's project work will need to be submitted and assessed by a trained assessor. Learn more about assessment for Silver Awards here.

Bronze assessment is incredibly easy, and can be adapted for at-home learning. Check out how to assess a Bronze project here.
