IET Faraday Resources

The IET Faraday programme has been developed by the Institution of Engineering and Technology, Europe’s largest professional organisation in the field. The aim is to introduce a new generation to the sheer excitement of science, technology and engineering.

These resources include cross-curricular classroom activities with accompanying film clips and downloadable supporting files such as presentations and handouts which can be tailored to students' needs.

The IET materials give a real insight into what it is like to be a scientist, technologist or engineer working at the cutting edge of technology. They investigate the problems that engineers face and the technologies behind their solutions and cover a variety of exciting areas.


This collection provides lots of STEM challenges and resources linked to science topics in the primary curriculum. Many support learning skills in design and technology and can be run as a project.

The challenge days support teachers in running their own Aerospace engineers or Lighthouse keeper transfer...

A collection of nine films featuring engineers at different career stages. The films present the daily work of an engineer, explain what engineering is and what it takes to have a successful career in engineering.

A series of STEM projects, bridging design and technology and computing, which make use of the BBC micro:bit microcontroller device.

This  resource collection, from the IET Faraday programme with support from MEI and Tomorrow's Engineers, contains a number of stimulating maths actives that give an insight into the real-life applications of classroom-based mathematics. The resources give students the chance to...
