This Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) DIY Faraday Challenge asks students to work in teams to design and make a prototype device that can be operated remotely to pick up objects and accurately locate them on a given target. Devices such as these are increasingly used in medical engineering. In this challenge the device will be simulating a heart and kidney transplant. Objects representing the human heart (tennis ball) and a kidney (ping-pong ball) must be picked up and accurately placed in their appropriate holes in an MDF/cardboard cutout of a human torso.

The challenge is designed to be delivered over a full day and the resource provides introduction videos, resources for students and support for facilitators on how to use the activity.
