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.




Power House

The resources in this Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) collection look at fuel poverty and the topical issue of the cost and efficient use of energy. There is an emphasis on the use of functional mathematics to analyse and interpret published facts and figures. The resources can be used individually...

Pure Water

The resources in this collection, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), look at how we meet our increasing water demands, the importance of clean water to public health, water shortages and engineering solutions to providing clean water. There is also a product design project to develop a ‘...

Remote Operations

Telemedicine is a new and fast developing field in healthcare. Even 20 years ago the idea of a surgeon being able to operate a robot from hundreds of miles away in order to perform an operation seemed like science fiction. Today, this is not only possible but engineers, working with scientists and doctors, are now...

Shifting Sewage

Through these resources, students investigate sewage tunnels that are being built under London and consider how society has changed over time, to identify the influences that have resulted in the needs for a new tunnel. Activities challenge students to use their mathematical skills to calculate critical dimensions...
