Faraday Challenges are designed to promote team work, curiosity and raise the profile of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects, so are particularly relevant as part of an enrichment and enhancement programme built into your curriculum.

This guide, from triple science support, offers background information and practical suggestions for teachers wishing to organise a Faraday Challenge Day and gives suggestions for securing progression and follow up activities. This is one of a suite of guides which provide a full range of suggestions for effective enhancement and enrichment activities which can be incorporated into the scheme of work, and these can be found on the triple science support enhancement and enrichment webpage. The guides include: FieldworkGenomics - using a researcher in the classroomRadiation and medicine, STEM AmbassadorsChemistry at WorkCrest AwardsAstrobiology, and Careers.
