IET Faraday Challenge Days

Delivered in 68 schools free of charge by the IET, the Faraday Challenge Days are one day STEM activities designed for six teams of six students in Year 8 (aged 12-13 years) and their equivalents, across the whole of the UK.

Each year there are an additional 12 dates held at IET Academic Partner universities as well as extra dates provided due to sponsors and donors.

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 set up and run by our team of STEM professionals to give you the time to focus on your students. It is an unbeatable opportunity to switch your students on to the subject you love.
