Faraday Challenge Day

The Faraday Challenge Days give students the opportunity to research, design and make solutions to genuinely tough engineering problems. The event was set up and run by a team of STEM professionals. The Challenge is all about letting the students be creative and use their own problem solving skills to explore their capabilities as engineers. Students worked in teams of 6 to create a product and present to teams from other schools. The students really took to the challenge and worked well as a team improving their communication skills and confidence. Both teams from Chobham Academy gave brilliant presentations on their product concluding a successful day.
