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 Faraday 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.





The use of different types of signals is hugely important in all areas of healthcare. Signal processing engineers are involved in everything from extracting information from the body’s own electrical and chemical signals to using wireless signals to allow search-and-rescue robot swarms to communicate with each...


This scheme of work, from the Institution of Engineering ad Technology (IET), provides students with an in-depth understanding of some engineering materials and how they are being developed in industry. This scheme was inspired by the casting process used to make the D3O smart material into a ‘usable’ form. This...

Dance Power

The engineers behind the Watt Nightclub in Rotterdam turn the energy created by clubbers on the dance-floor into power for the lighting. There is even a giant battery to monitor the energy and encourage the crowd to dance more. These resources look at how colour can affect mood and at how electric power can be...

These three resources from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) investigate the ways in which a range of sports use technology to improve performance.

* Opta Sports data uses leading edge technology to compile team and player performance data for a range of sports and has quickly become a...
