IET Faraday Challenge Days 2022-23

The Faraday Challenge Day events are aimed at 12-13-year-olds (Year 8 students in England and Wales, S1/S2 students in Scotland and Year 9 students in Northern Ireland).

Our theme partner this year is UKRI’s Future Flight Challenge. See information on all our programme supporters for the 2022-23 season.

The IET Faraday Challenge is an annual competition. Find out more on how you can enter your school.

The National Faraday Challenge competition and National Final

The winning team from each event will take home a voucher for themselves as well as gaining a place on the national league table. The top five teams at the end of the season will be treated to an all-expenses-paid trip to the final, as well as a chance of taking home £1,000 for their school to spend on STEM activities.

National league table

Don’t forget to keep an eye on the national league table to see if your school appears, and best of luck to all teams taking part this year!
