A group of Year 8 students entered the IET Faraday Engineering Challenge at Aston University last Thursday, 14th May. They took on different roles from accountant and project manager to electronic and 3D design engineers. Throughout the day they had to design a beacon for cyclists on the road, produce a 3D design on the laptop and print it on the 3D printers then assemble their electronics to ensure their beacon worked before presenting to a panel of judges.
