Year 8 ‘Smashes’ the Faraday Challenge

The Winning Team!

Students were excited to undertake the National Faraday Challenge run by the Institute of Engineering and Technology . This year it was sponsored by the IMEEH who designed and build Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.

5 Teams of  Year 8 students competed to design, build and present their ideas for innovative devices to help calm and reassure children during a stay in hospital.

We were impressed with the high levels of enthusiasm and teamwork from all students.  The winning team took the trophy with an ‘automated safety window device’, and narrowly missed a national top 5 placement with an impressive score of 76%. Congratulations to all the students involved for their brilliant efforts!
