Institute of Engineering and Technology Challenge
Our Faraday Challenge Day theme partner this season is Network Rail.
Based on a real-world problem, the Virtual Faraday Challenge brings together STEM subjects (science, design and technology, engineering and maths) in an engaging way and encourages the development of young people’s problem solving and communication skills.
This season’s Virtual Faraday Challenge tasked Year 8 to see if they can assist the work of Network Rail in helping them to sustainably manage the increasing numbers of passengers using their network and minimise their impact on the environment.
The brief for the challenge is given by video from our Faraday Challenge Day Challenge Leaders and young people had to demonstrate that they had the engineering skills required to think of a solution and produce a design of their idea. Some even got to build a model of their idea!
Thank you to Ms Robjant for organising everything and well done to Year 8 for being so engaged, creative and hardworking!
