IET Faraday® Challenge Days
The annual IET Faraday® Challenge is and engineering-based competition for schools. Six teams of six students, aged 12-13 years, compete against one another to see who can design, create and promote the best solution to a given challenge. All challenges are genuine, real-life engineering problems.
The highly successful Greenpower challenge to design, build and race a single seat electric car provides young people with a unique hands-on opportunity to engage in engineering.
