Virtual Faraday Challenge

Published 30th April 2020

Due to the current circumstances, the IET has adapted this year’s Faraday Challenge developed in partnership with Airbus to bring you the first Virtual Faraday Challenge!

Open for anyone between 7-15, young people can do this at home, in school, individually or as a group or family. 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.

The Virtual Faraday Challenge challenges young people to see if they can assist the work of Airbus in helping people around the world in times of need and work in the way engineers do in designing a new product. The best entries will receive a prize and may even feature on our website. Click here to find the brief and details on how to enter visit
