BA CREST Awards-Celebrating CREativity in Science and technology aims to develop curiosity in young people aged 11-19 to carry out authentic project work in science and technology. Through a mentoring system, the scheme builds links between schools and industry or higher education. It enables students of all abilities to explore relevant scientific or technological problems and promotes work-related learning. By recognising and accrediting student’s achievements, BA CREST Awards help young people realise their potential and develop motivation and confidence, encouraging them to pursue careers in science, engineering and technology.
