Year 8 Faraday Challenge Day 2020

36 Year 8 students took part in the IET’s Faraday Challenge which is a national competition. 

The Challenge Day was a day-long STEM activity that focuses on fun, hands-on problem solving and critical thinking.

Students were awarded Industrial Cadets Challenger Award from the EDT (Engineering Development Trust) and a CREST Discovery Award from the British Science Association. The winning team were also awarded a £10 Amazon voucher for each team member and a trophy for Trinity School.

The IET’s challenge leaders were extremely impressed by how Trinity students used their prior knowledge to tackle the real-world problem given to them.

Although we are not through to the regional finals, we hope to compete again next year!
