The Land Rover 4×4 in Schools Technology Challenge is an enhancement and enrichment STEM initiative that gives young people an insight of what it takes to become an engineer.
The 4×4 in Schools Technology Challenge is a challenge aimed at key stage 3, 4 and 5 students in school / young people aged 11 – 19 years old in any out of school initiative like STEM clubs
The challenge involves 4 to 6 team members working together to design and build a radio controlled 4-wheel-drive (4×4) vehicle, to set specifications, that can successfully negotiate a specially designed test track that emulates real life and what a full scale 4×4 vehicle can do. The challenge is an excellent opportunity for young people to work in teams and gain an awareness and understanding of project management using key skills.
