Solutions for the Planet is now CREST accredited to Bronze Level. Meaning students who progress to the semi-finals will achieve a Bronze CREST Award from the British Science Association.
“The BSA believes that science and technology are a central part of our culture, and that everyone should feel able to be involved. The Solutions for the Planet final was so inspiring because of the young people who are leading the innovation and driving forward ideas themselves- not sitting back and waiting for ‘professionals’ to come up with solutions to the planet’s problems. All the big ideas were highly impressive, and I have no doubt that many will go on to make a real difference to people’s lives. The essence of the BSA’s CREST Awards is to reward excellent creative STEM project work- and this was certainly excellent!” Maria Rossini, Education Partnerships Manager.
