About Land Rover

4x4 in Schools

The 4x4 in Schools Technology Challenge is an enhancement and enrichment initiative that gives young people an insight of what it takes to become an engineer. The project hopes to raise awareness, interest, enjoyment and enthusiasm in, science, technology, engineering and maths through a practical 'hands on' experience.

Are You Ready For The Challenge?

The challenge is aimed at young people aged 11 – 18 years old (key stages 3, 4 and 5), and involves 4 to 6 team members working together to design and build a radio controlled 4-wheel-drive (4x4) vehicle to set specifications, that can successfully negotiate a specially designed test track that emulates that of real life and what a full scale 4x4 vehicle can do. Teams entering the challenge will spend a number of weeks designing, researching, building and project managing their 4x4 vehicle to enter it into a regional heat to compete against other schools from their area. Regional winners will be selected via a judging process to go through to the National Final where they will compete again but this time against the other regional winners to challenge to become the 4x4 in school Technology Challenge UK National Champions.
