Faraday Challenge Day Tender

The Institution of Engineering and Technology invites providers to tender for the design and delivery of the 2019-22 Faraday Challenge Day (FCD) programme and the production of the materials for the associated DIY Faraday Challenge Days (DIY FCD).

The Faraday Challenge Day programme is intended to provide schools and their students with a stand-alone, one-day, high-intensity engineering-based experience. The day is entirely led by the contractors in the school, with the intention of making it as straight-forward for the schools as possible. The event is intended to be cross-curricular across the STEM subjects.

The challenge is developed each season by the contractor with guidance and final approval from the IET and any significant sponsors. The challenge must be relevant to the IET’s areas of engineering; have relevance to real-world situations; and, draw upon the sort of learning students should have covered in Science, Maths, Design & Technology and ICT.

The annual challenge operates nationally throughout the academic year and currently requires six teams of six students, aged 12-13 years, to compete against one another to see who can design, create and promote the best solution to a given challenge. The season culminates with a national final where the top teams compete again to become the season champions.

Please note ITT responses should be submitted by email on or before midday on Wednesday 31 October 2018.
