On 13 May, 2017, “Faraday Challenge Day 2017”, which was organized by Institute of Engineering and Technology and co-organized by QES was held in our school. We had a wonderful experience and learned to work with each other.
During the challenge, we were assigned a mission, which was to design a signals transmitter to send emergency messages to seek help. We used our “Faraday Tokens” (a kind of money) to purchase the materials such as light bulbs, wires, sensors etc. to produce our signal transmitter model. With our knowledg in STEM, we designed the model and realized our ideas. For example, we used “closed circuit” to create light signals (Science knowledge), we calculated the minimum cost and produce the financial report (Mathematics knowledge), we chose appropriate material and used different hand tools (Technology and Engineering knowledge) during the process.


After working hard for a few hours, we presented our model to the judges. During the test, we divided ourselves into two groups, one group should send encoded messages, and another group should try to decode correctly. We were extremely excited but we completed all the missions smoothly.


Finally, we got the Championship. Our team members are very happy, not just because we won the challenge but we have learned a lot to be an engineer. If there is any competition and activity about design & technology in the future, all of us would like to join again.
