Faraday Challenge Day – Hong Kong Final

The IET Faraday Challenge Days has been organized by IET Hong Kong since 2014 aiming to provide a one-day cross-curricular activity covering Science, Design and Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) for junior secondary students. The Challenge gives students the opportunity to research, design and make solutions to genuinely tough engineering problems. The event will be set up and run by our IET STEM professionals to give you the time to focus on your students. It is an unbeatable opportunity to switch your students on to the subject you love.

The theme of the 2021 season of Faraday Challenge Days is about Transportation and Sustainability. It is co-organised with IVE IT Discipline and supported by MTR Corporation, HKACE and Classroom Centre.

With the current situation of the pandemic, the Faraday Challenge Days 2021 has been adapted to the school-based-teacher-led format. Designed by our IET STEM experts with technical supports from IET Hong Kong, this format allows teachers to run a Faraday Challenge Day in schools and forms part of the Faraday Challenge Final Competition.

More than 100 S1 and S2 students and teachers from 6 schools making up 30 teams will compete for their best designs and prototypes using various material and electronic components in just 8 hours. The winning teams from each school of each Faraday Challenge Days will gain a place on the IET 150 Faraday Challenge Final at Hong Kong Science Park on 15 August 2021 during the IET 150 Carnival. All the top teams will exhibit and present their ideas at the Final to compete for cash prizes for their school to spend on STEM activities. The host schools of the 2021 season can be found below:
