Land Rover 4x4 in Schools World Finals 2019

 


LAND ROVER SCHOOLS TECHNOLOGY CHALLENGE COMES HOME FOR 2019 WORLD FINALS

More than 150 talented future engineers from schools in 20 countries will meet in the West Midlands for the Land Rover 4x4 in Schools Technology Challenge world finals.
The students will compete to design and build miniature remote-controlled 4x4s over four days (13th to 16th April 2019) at the University of Warwick, near Jaguar Land Rover’s headquarters in Whitley.
Thousands of young people have taken part in the competition since 2006. It was launched internationally in 2015 and now runs in 20 countries. The world finals will bring together all the national champions, with students travelling to the UK to compete for the Land Rover 4x4 in Schools world champions’ trophy.

"As the automotive industry accelerates towards an automated, connected, electric and shared future, we are passionate about inspiring the next generation of engineering talent. The Land Rover 4x4 in Schools Technology Challenge is a vital part of our education programme and we’re delighted to be hosting the world finals."
Chris Thorp - Director of Responsible Business

Student teams around the globe are now preparing for the finals and working hard to produce a world-beating remote control scale-model off roader which incorporates lessons learned in their national final competition.The student teams use software coding to design and build a remote-controlled scale model four-wheel-drive all-terrain vehicle capable of negotiating obstacles and road surfaces including water dips, a rope bridge, and rocks – all on a bespoke Land Rover track replicating the capabilities of a full-size SUV. The teams also have to present their work and knowledge of vehicle design and engineering to a panel of judges.
