Institute of Engineering & Technology’s Faraday Challenge
21 February 2018
Four second years competed in the Institute of Engineering & Technology's Faraday Challenge at Larkmead school. They had to plan, design and evaluate a new attraction for Thorpe Park, before presenting it to the other competitors. It had to appeal to all, not just thrill seekers. They decided on a rollercoaster, which could run at three different speeds to suit different people and built a 3-speed gear box to make it work.
