Global CREST Challenges







...exciting new CREST awards


Looking for a challenging STEM project for your students?

Want to encourage your student to achieve a CREST award and maybe go on to take part in national competitions such as the Big Bang Fair?


Then Practical Action’s Global CREST challenges are perfect for you.  Challenges are based on real problems faced in developing countries.  They are divided into five themes – water, food, energy, shelter and transport.  Our resources give students ideas for starting point for projects and to help them we link to technical briefs which are used by real engineers in the field.


Working on these projects provides students with a great opportunity to gain a real understanding of how science and engineering can be used to the benefit of people in the developing world.
