There are two routes of entry to the BA CREST Science Fair.
Most of the students attending the fair have completed a BA CREST award and taken part in regional CREST competitions and been nominated by their CREST regional manager to go on to the National event.
Students who have not been nominated or have participated in other project-based schemes, such as the Nuffield Bursary scheme, or the Engineering Education Scheme can also enter the fair by nominating themselves.
All students are required to complete an application form and submit a short abstract about their project. A panel of judges then selects the best projects to exhibit at the fair. Each exhibitor receives a certificate to acknowledge their achievement.
The judges are looking for: Creativity Reasoning Originality Clarity Thoroughness Communication
Application forms for the BA CREST Science Fair will be available to download here in October.
