We are running a free training workshop for teachers and STEM Ambassadors who want to work together to run an IET DIY Faraday Challenge Day in school.
We anticipate that as a result of this training, teachers will run an IET DIY Challenge Day in their school in the spring or summer term of 2015. This could be in the form of a collapsed timetable day, spread out over a few weeks as a STEM club activity, or in any way that best suits the school's needs.
The Faraday Challenges are based on teams of students trying to solve problems using modern engineering - we'll be looking at the EMERGENCY COMMUNICATIONS challenge. Participants will receive all training materials and a USB stick with all the information on required to run a successful enrichment activity. You will also spend the time considering how best to implement the activity back in school.
Teachers - you will be able to consider the best way to run this activity, understand what the Emergency Communications activity entails and discuss with STEM Ambassadors how best to use volunteers to enrich the activity further.
STEM Ambassadors - you will find out what is involved in setting up and running an activity like this in school, understand the role of the volunteer in delivering these activity days and discuss your ideas for how to relate the activity back to the real world of engineering.
N.B. Drink and biscuits supplied (naturally). We anticipate that some fun will be had.

*The STEM Ambassador scheme is a free resource for teachers and schools. STEM Ambassadors are people from industry and research who offer their time voluntarily to enthuse and inspire students within schools about STEM subjects. They can do this through a variety of activities such as clubs, careers talks, helping with school events, lessons and competitions.
