IET Faraday Primary Resources

This collection provides two Faraday Challenge days, curriculum posters and classroom certificates for primary learners. The challenge days support teachers in running their own Aerospace engineers or Lighthouse keeper transfer challenge day with children. They can be used to enhance the curriculum as children need to apply existing knowledge of electrical circuits, forces, design and construction in an integrated project.

 

Although the challenges are designed to be delivered across one day they can also be split into smaller parts and used over several weeks or within a STEM club.

 

These resources have been provided by the IET, (Institution of Engineering and Technology).
