For a First, Bronze or Silver CREST Award undertake a research project about New Zealand Dinosaurs and then, students can either

  • Create a model of a dinosaur found in New Zealand;
  • Design a useful tool for a NZ paleontologist to use;
  • Create a game involving different types of NZ dinosaurs or
  • Develop an App which would help you and your friends identify different  NZ fossils.
