Issued: Wed, 10 Jan 2018 15:29:00 GMT

IET Faraday Challenge Days give students the opportunity to research, design and make prototype solutions to genuinely tough engineering problems. At each event teams compete to win a prize for themselves and a trophy for their school.

The event is free of charge and set up and run by a team of STEM professionals to give you the time to focus on your students.

Delivered by the IET in 68 schools and 12 Academic Partner universities - as well as further events available as requested by funders and sponsors - the Faraday Challenge Days are one day STEM activities for six teams of six students. Our 2018-19 season's Challenge Days are designed for Year 8 students (England) and their equivalents (aged 12-13 years).
