Year 8 Students take part in the Faraday Challenge Day

Six Year 8 teams of students took part in the Faraday Challenge Day, a charity committed to the advancement of science, engineering and technology and to encourage young people to study STEM subjects and consider careers within the engineering and technology sectors.  The Challenge Day, sponsored by Jack Petchey, gave them the opportunity to research, design and make solutions to genuinely tough engineering problems designing prototypes to present to the James Webb Space Telescope Team.  The winners from the day were Team 3 and they met with the Headteachers to receive their coveted trophy.  Tag: https://www.facebook.com/IETFaraday/  https://www.jackpetcheyfoundation.org.uk/
