The CREST Awards scheme is an education scheme run by the British Science Association’s for young people, providing science enrichment activities to inspire and engage 5-to-19-year olds. When we talk about science we mean it in the broadest sense possible, inclusive of natural and social sciences, engineering, maths and technology. 

CREST gives students the chance to participate in hands-on science through investigations and
enquiry-based learning, supporting them to solve real-life STEM challenges through practical investigation and discussion. It can be run in schools, after school clubs, other organisations or at home.

CREST Awards challenges students to work creatively with freedom and independence throughout.

Welcome to BT’s virtual STEM learning programme.
BT have provided short videos to explain how they are using computing, science, maths and engineering to help people to communicate and stay connected.
We hope these will help to bring the school curriculum to life and give you a view of what you are learning at school / college is used in the world of work.
