Land Rover 4x4 Schools Technology Challenge- January 2018

The Land Rover 4x4 in Schools Technology Challenge requires students to build a radio controlled four-wheel drive (4x4) vehicle to the strict specifications provided by the International Rules Committee. It must successfully navigate and complete obstacles on an off-road test track which is just as demanding as a real off-road situation. The vehicle must emulate the capabilities of a full size 4x4 vehicle. Each team will enter the vehicle into a Regional Final to compete for a place at the National Final in their country. The National Champions from each country are then invited to compete at the Land Rover 4x4 in Schools World Finals.

The challenge is split into three classes of entry into the competition; Entry, Development and Professional. Each team must decide which class they would like to enter before registering to compete at a Regional Final. The three classes will be judged separately to each other and separate awards will be presented. New teamscan enter either class of the challenge. The Best "Development"teamfrom each region will be invited to attend the National Final along with the professional class regional winners.

Some 20 schools took part, the winners being decided by some 14 judges with teams not only have to track test their car on our obstacle course, they also have to present their design portfolio, produce a ‘pit display’, give a verbal presentation to a panel of judges and attend an engineering interview.

Silverware awards are made under various categories, with the winners of the “professional” class being shortlisted for assessment days when JLR start their annual recruitment, as well as all the regional winners going forward to the national finals. The international finals were held in Abu Dhabi in 2017.
