b'There were 165 entries in the 2020 Virtual Faraday Challenges, involving 257 participants. The 2020/21 season began with continued uncertainty. Alongside our new theme partner Network Rail we adapted the challenge to be delivered in-school by teachers with remote support and as a Virtual Challenge. Network Rail challenged students to design a product to sustainably manage increasing numbers of passengers using their network.We were able to deliver three Teacher-led days in November and December. This involved 112 students from three schools. 77% of participants were female.We will continue to support students and teachers to take part in the Teacher-led days and Virtual Challenge for the rest of this season. We look forward to being back in schools in September 2021.The Teacher-led Challenge Day was a fantastic opportunity for the pupils, especially in these challenging times at school where they are not allowed practical work.Teacher'
