Gold CREST and Team Gold CREST

Gold and Team Gold are awards for advanced projects, for Year 12-13 students and take 6 Terms to complete.

Gold CREST is on hold

Due to the uncertainties of the evolving COVID-19 situation, the need to protect our communities and the discomfort and anxiety around gatherings and travel, we are currently not accepting new Gold CREST applications. We will reassess in June 2022. Should you have any questions, please email CREST@royalsociety.org.nz.


Gold CREST requires students to expand their knowledge of specific techniques, language and analysis methods used in their area of research. Student achievement is assessed on creativity, perseverance and the application of knowledge.
