We have many students who have achieved the Bronze Award and some have achieved the Silver, but ALIYAH ASLAM is our FIRST student to have achieved the GOLD CREST AWARD from The British Science Association
Gold Awards allow the most able students to conduct real research. They are longer-term projects that require around 70 hours’ work, and are typically completed by 16-to-19-year-olds. By working towards a CREST Gold Award, students will develop and deliver largely self-directed projects.
The aim is for students’ work to contribute something new to the scientific or technological community or to a particular field of study. They are supported by an industry or higher education mentor, who can offer guidance and advice, and are required to prepare a final report and present the outcomes of their project to their CREST assessor.
