I understand a bit about the Crest awards. This is where you have to complete a project on some sort of STEM subject isn’t it? From what I know you have to fulfil design briefs, conduct research, perform risk assessments, and present your findings in reports or something similar.
I would say that everything you take part in in these awards I have done at some point in every project I have been involved in, both at university and in my work today. It doesn’t matter on the size of the project – small or large – you will always need to know what you need to accomplish, find out things, perform tasks, write reports and present what you have found.
In my project we are getting ready to do a first presentation to the managers in my company to show them what designs we have come up with so far. I have had to do some research and write up my findings, and do some tests and work towards creating a design.
Congratulations on completing your bronze award, I would say that all the skills you used are some of the most important things you will need if you want to follow a career in science or engineering. Good luck on completing the silver award!
