The Faraday Challenge


The Faraday Challenge is an annual STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) competition which requires students to design and build a prototype capable of solving a real-world problem. This year, 36 of our Year 8 students stepped up to the challenge of designing a product capable of assisting people stranded in disaster zones. At the conclusion of the day, each team presented their ideas to the rest of the group and were judged on their final design, teamwork and communication skills.
