About IET Faraday Secondary

The IET Faraday programme has been developed by the Institution of Engineering and Technology, Europe’s largest professional organisation in the field. Our aim is to introduce a new generation to the sheer excitement of science, technology and engineering.

The IET Faraday resources are free and all available through our website. Our materials include cross-curricular classroom activities with accompanying film clips, quizzes and podcasts, as well as downloadable supporting files such as PowerPoint presentation and handouts that you can tailor to the needs of your students. We also run an annual competition - IET Faraday Challenge Days - as well as offer classroom posters and careers packs that you can order from us free of charge.

What is IET Education?

The IET Education 5-19 team runs an education service aimed at supporting teachers of science and technology and provides a range of curriculum support, resources and information for schools. We support partnership organisations in the provision of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) resources and experiences for both teachers and students across the UK. 

Full information about the IET's education programme for schools and colleges can be found in the Education Programme brochure.
