IET Faraday Challenge

Posted by: Kerry Bryan on 19-10-2018

A team of 6 girls representing Hollyfield took part in the IET Faraday Challenge on the 12th October 2018. Their challenge was to build 'something' that could assist the James Webb Space Telescope team in the design, transport and functioning of the telescope in space. Their idea had to have an electrical component but other than that specification, they had total creative control over what they decided to build. They were given a budget and had to use their 'faradays' to buy parts from the shop for their design. The girls then had to complete a 7 minute presentation to the judge in which they all had to speak and answer questions. It was a very interesting challenge and the girls learnt a lot about building circuits, budgeting and presenting.
