IET Faraday Challenge Days

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.  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. The 2018-19 season’s Challenge Days are designed for Year 8 students (England) and their equivalents (aged 12 to 13 years).
