The Land Rover 4x4 Schools Technology Challenge – a project-based STEM competition – is now open to all UK secondary schools to register their participation for the 2018/19 season.

Students work in small teams to design and build a “Land Rover of the future”, taking on different roles in the team and operating as a mini-business. Successful teams will compete in regional, national and world champion competitions.

The challenge asks the teams to build a radio controlled four-wheel drive vehicle that will successfully navigate and complete obstacles on an off-road test track that is just as demanding as the real thing. It is an international challenge aimed at key stage 3, 4 and 5 students.

The competition is split into three classes. Entry Class is an introduction to vehicle design, aesthetics and concept modelling. The Development Class builds on this with manufacturing, engineering and electronics incorporated into the vehicle development. The Professional Class, for experienced participants, challenges the teams to use more complex engineering and electronics.
