Check out the activities below, we will release a new activity every Monday, Wednesday and Friday!

You will also find more on our Twitter page.

Every Monday why not try a Maths quiz question to test your brain power?

The Bright Ideas Challenge

What will cities look like in 2050? How will they be powered to be vibrant, healthy and clean places to live? That’s the question put to students aged 11-14 by The Bright Ideas Challenge, Shell’s cross-curricular schools’ competition. Now in its fifth year, the competition invites young people to use their creativity, problem solving, teamwork and STEM skills to devise innovative solutions that could power cities of the future. With over £45,000 worth of cash prizes up for grabs, there’s every reason to think big!

 

 

Virtual Faraday Challenge

Due to the current circumstances, the IET has adapted this year’s Faraday Challenge developed in partnership with Airbus to bring you the first Virtual Faraday Challenge! Open for anyone between 7-15, young people can do this at home, in school, individually or as a group or family. Based on a real-world problem, the Virtual Faraday Challenge brings together STEM subjects (science, design and technology, engineering and maths) in an engaging way and encourages the development of young people’s problem solving and communication skills. The Virtual Faraday Challenge challenges young people to see if they can assist the work of Airbus in helping people around the world in times of need and work in the way engineers do in designing a new product. The best entries will receive a prize and may even feature on our website.
