Supporting Faraday Challenge Days
47 schools across the UK will be hosting IET Faraday Challenge Days over the 2014/2015 academic year, taking part in an inspirational engineering challenge. Students aged 12 - 13 years must research, design, build and test a solution to a real-life problem.

The top teams at each challenge day will win prizes for themselves and their schools, and the top three teams of the challenge will go on to compete at the national final.

You can be part of these fantastic days and share your enthusiasm for your career with future engineers.

FIRST® LEGO® League Champions at Westminster
2014 FIRST® LEGO® League world champions Invicta, along with 2013 world champions Untitled 1, joined policymakers Wednesday 9th September at a pledge signing event at Westminster.
 
The two teams had a chance to show off their robots and teach MPs how to programme LEGO Mindstorms.  Attending MPs signed a pledge to encourage employers in their constituencies to work with schools to provide work experience opportunities and inspirational careers information.
 
The event was filmed by ITN Productions for new online programme Working to Engineer a Better World, to be presented by Natasha Kaplinsky. 

Congratulations Invicta and Untitled 1!

Spent a day with 400 Brownies in North Ayrshire to help celebrate 100 year anniversary. Discussed engineering and science in the "future zone" where hopefully some technology careers were kindled in the all female audience The IET torch kits helped make a memorable experience for all. Networking opportunities abounded for further outreach spinoff to schools and other organisations.
