On Tuesday 22nd June, all of Year 8 took part in the Faraday Challenge. The competition was organised by The Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) and is a national competition held across the country. Students worked in teams to design and develop a product which meet the needs of a brief set by Network Rail. They wanted students to create a prototype of an idea which would help to manage the increase in passengers in their stations, platforms or on their trains.
All students worked extremely hard throughout the day and came up with some very original and innovative ideas. The final 6 teams will now be judged by a member of the IET and a winner will be announced in the next few weeks. They will then go forward onto a national league table on the Faraday challenge website.
