A Day in the Life

IET Faraday Challenge

Last week five boys from Year 8 attended the Institute of Engineering and Technology Faraday Challenge Day, held at Myton School.

Last week five boys from Year 8; Ned Wilson, Leo Sica, Alex Bosworth, Tivik Peranantham and George McLintock attended the Institute of Engineering and Technology Faraday Challenge Day, held at Myton School. The challenge day required the boys to plan, design and create a prototype model for assisting people facing a natural disaster such as a flood or earthquake. The boys applied all that they had learnt in their physics lessons on electrical circuits to create a prototype drone that could be used to deliver aid to those in need.

The judges were so blown away with the boys’ creativity, planning and presentation skills that they awarded the team 1st place. The boys will now progress to the Regional round, competing against teams from areas such as Nottinghamshire or Cambridgeshire, where they will battle it out for a place in the National Final!  

The IET Faraday Challenge is an annual competition of STEM activity days with a real-world challenge for pupils aged 12-13 years.
