IET Faraday Challenge, 30 January 2019, Anglia Ruskin University
We are pleased to announce that we have secured a Faraday Challenge Day from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on Wednesday 30 January 2019. The event will be held at Anglia Ruskin University.
We now need six schools to take part, each of which will submit a team of six year 8 students, and are offering schools the chance to register.
If you are interested, please contact Roy Hilsley as soon as possible. Spaces will be offered on a first come, first served basis, and schools must be able to guarantee their attendance.
IET Faraday Challenge hosted by CSES and Anglia Ruskin University, Wed 18 Jan 2017
On Wednesday 18 January 2017, teams of six Year 8 students from Greensward Academy, Westcliff High School for Girls, Westcliff High School for Boys, Colchester Royal Grammar School and King Edward VI Grammar School took part in the Faraday Challenge run by IET (Institute of Engineering and Technology) and CSES (Chelmsford Science and Engineering Society) at Anglia Ruskin University.
They were set the task of working together to design and build a product to solve problems. As the Challenge is a national competition, the exact nature of the task is a secret but involved coding a computer to respond to feedback from various sensors, and then presenting the final product, at the end of the day, to two judges from the IET.
