Events Ambassador - CREST Award (13-19 year olds only)

CREST awards aim to encourage primary and secondary school students to undertake projects in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) related areas. Students' achievements can be recognised with awards at bronze, silver and gold levels.

CREST gives young people aged 5–19 the chance to choose their own subject and methodology when completing their hands-on investigation.

We are looking for friendly and creative volunteers to help us run various events throughout the year. These events are wide ranging and can include helping with our regular activities, such as storytimes and craft activities, or assisting special one off events, such a performance from the London Mozart Orchestra.

Look out for opportunities as they occur at various times of the year.
