  • Students from Huddersfield school beat thousands of young people to be crowned Land Rover 4x4 in Schools Technology #uk champions
  • Challenge helped Jaguar Land Rover’s school education programme engage with 240,000 young people in the #uk last year
  • Teams from Milton Keynes, Worcester, Huddersfield and Glasgow will represent the #uk in the Land Rover 4x4 in Schools World Final in December

Monday 3 April 2017, Whitley, Coventry – A team of 15- and 16-year-old students from Moor End Academy in Huddersfield have won one of the UK’s top education challenges.

Their radio-controlled vehicle tackled rocks and water to win the Land Rover 4x4 in Schools Technology Challenge,  a project-based education programme for teams of six students aged 11-18 who design, test and build scale-model remote control vehicles in lessons or at after-school STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) clubs.

Moor End Academy’s team, ‘Robust’, went head-to-head with other schools at their regional final to secure their place at the #uk final. At each stage, their work was scrutinised by vehicle design specialists including Jaguar Land Rover graduates, engineers and retirees.

The #uk champions received an Arkwright Engineering Scholarship from Land Rover, a well-respected programme which nurtures high-potential future engineering leaders. The two year programme supports scholars throughout their A-levels and includes financial support towards their STEM studies as well as guidance from a Jaguar Land Rover mentor and work experience placement at Jaguar Land Rover. The students also won a £1,000 scholarship for Harper Adams University and a place at the Land Rover 4x4 in Schools World Final 2017.
