Five Harris academies to battle it out in National Engineering Competition

Young future engineers and scientists from five Harris academies will be heading to Harris Academy St. John’s Wood on 8th March to compete in a heat of The Faraday Challenge, a demanding national engineering-based competition. The Faraday Challenge is an exciting initiative by the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) aimed at encouraging more young people to study and consider exciting and rewarding careers in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) by using creativity, innovation and problem-solving skills. Schools up and down the country are taking part in the challenge days which are run by industry professionals. 

 

On the day, two year 8 teams of Harris Academy St. John’s Wood students will be battling against teams from
Harris Academy Rainham, Harris Chafford Hundred, Harris Girls’ East Dulwich and Harris Academy Falconwood.

 

During the day, teams will race against the clock to solve a real-life problem, putting their technology and engineering skills to the test. The brief for the day is a closely guarded secret so to avoid unfair preparation and research; the only clue the students have is that this year’s challenge is related to Thorpe Park theme park.

 

The top five teams in the UK will go forward to a National Final in July where they will be treated to an all-expenses paid trip to Thorpe Park and compete again to win £1,000 prize money for their school to spend on science and technology related activities.

 

Dr. Chris Tomlinson, Regional Secondary Director at the Harris Federation, said:

 

“The Faraday Challenge is a fantastic and fun initiative to get students thinking about the broad range of really interesting careers within the STEM sector. Importantly, it allows students to apply what they’ve been learning in the classroom to exciting real-life industry scenarios and challenges.  We are delighted to be hosting this event and I’d really love to see a Harris team make it to the Final.”
