CREST Awards Through Project-based Learning
By the British Science Association, the CREST awards help students to tackle science with an investigative approach. This case study describes how Charlton School gave Year Eight students a chance to undertake independent projects based on their individual enthusiasms.
Students worked towards a bronze CREST award and undertook a wide range of independent activities. These included a team who made a video documentary to explain the process of coastal erosion. The projects helped students develop communication skills, team working and encouraged cross-curricular collaboration.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
