Free STEM activity days in your school: IET Faraday Challenge Day!

Faraday Challenge Days are one day activities, designed for six teams of six students aged 12-13 years, delivered in your school by The IET. They give students the opportunity to research, design and build prototype solutions to genuinely tough engineering problems.

The 2016-17 season of Faraday Challenge Days will run from September 2016 right through till June 2017, with the winners of each event winning prizes for themselves and their school. The top five teams from across the UK will win an all-expenses paid trip to the National Final in July 2017 to compete for a cash prize of up to £1000 for their school.

Two ways to take part

Each host school needs a school hall or large classroom for the day, and six teams of six students to take part (36 students in total).

Schools can either apply to:

  • Enter all six teams from their own school, or
  • Enter one team from their own school, and invite five teams from local schools to join them.

IET Faraday Challenge Days are completely FREE

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) is one of the world’s leading professional societies for the engineering and technology community. It is through their charitable arm that they are able to provide the IET Faraday Challenge Days at no charge to UK schools.

Go to the IET Faraday website to download the ‘Host school application form‘ or for further information.

Deadline for applications is Monday 25th July 2016
