Faraday supporters 2015-16
The IET is running 30 Faraday Challenge Days during the 2015-16 academic season in partnership with the Jack Petchey Foundation. This opportunity enables IET to reach out to a wide variety of schools in London and Essex who are successfully operating the Foundation’s Achievement Award.
Each Faraday Challenge Day is available to 36 Year 7 students (six teams of six students) and is absolutely free of charge. There will be three schools involved in each day – one host school and two other visiting schools, all bringing student teams in to share the learning and grow a network of contacts for each teacher to build on in the future.

Bosch is working hard to ensure that young people are aware that engineering really is all around us. Bosch will be supporting the IET at 10 Faraday Challenge Days at schools close to local Bosch sites in 2016.
At each of these events, Bosch will be sending along one of their engineers to not only support the students on the day, but to also explain what their everyday job entails to give the students an insight into working for a global engineering organisation. Find out more.
