Secondary project briefs (ages 11+)


Bronze Awards are typically completed by students aged 11+. They complete a ten-hour project which is a perfect introduction to STEM project work. Over the course of the project, teams of students design their own investigation, record their findings, and reflect on their learnings. This process gives students a taste of what it is like to be a scientist or engineer in the real-world.


Silver Awards are typically completed by students aged 14+ over thirty hours. Project work at Silver level is designed to stretch your students and enrich their STEM studies. Students direct the project, determining the project’s aim and how they will achieve it. They carry out the project, record and analyse their results and reflect on the project and their learnings. All Silver projects are assessed by CREST assessors via our online platform.


Gold Awards are typically completed by students aged 16+ over seventy hours. Students’ projects are self-directed, longer term and immerse them in real research. At this level, we recommend students work with a mentor from their chosen STEM field of study. All Gold projects are assessed by CREST assessors via our online platform. There are more CREST approved resources that have been developed by our partners and providers specific to your region.

Gwnewch yn siŵr eich bod chi'n cynllunio'ch amser yn effeithiol ac yn darganfod cymaint ag y gallwch chi am ddysgu peirianyddol cyn i chi ddechrau. A gwnewch yn siŵr eich bod chi'n glir am y broblem y mae angen i chi ei datrys. Os ydych chi'n datblygu'ch syniad prosiect eich hun, trafodwch eich syniadau â'ch athro neu'ch mentor cyn i chi gychwyn ar eich prosiect. 2. Cynlluniwch Lluniwch neu ysgrifennwch gynllun yn dangos sut y byddwch chi'n mynd i'r afael â'r broblem, y tasgau y byddwch chi'n eu cwblhau, yr adnoddau y bydd eu hangen arnoch chi a pha mor hir y byddwch chi'n ei dreulio ar bob tasg. Gofynnwch i'ch athro neu fentor am adborth ar eich cynllun. 3. Byddwch yn ofalus! Nodwch unrhyw risgiau i iechyd a diogelwch neu bryderon moesegol y credwch y bydd. Penderfynwch sut y byddwch yn cyfyngu neu'n goresgyn y risgiau hyn. Dangoswch eich asesiad risg i'ch athro. 4. Ymchwilio Ystyriwch ddod o hyd i fentor proffesiynol trwy gysylltu â'ch Hwb Llysgennad STEM lleol: stem.org.uk/stemambassadors/ localstem-ambassadorhubs Darganfyddwch fwy trwy wneud rhywfaint o ymchwil gan ddefnyddio'r dolenni a awgrymir ar dudalen y prosiect. Ymchwilio i erthyglau newyddion perthnasol, postiadau blog a ffynonellau cyfryngau eraill. 5. Defnyddiwch eich ymchwil i wella'ch cynllun a chynhyrchu syniadau Defnyddiwch eich ymchwil i'ch helpu chi i ddod o hyd i ateb posib neu i ddewis yr arbrofion gorau i'w defnyddio yn eich gwaith ymarferol. 6.
