The challenge is an incredible opportunity for young bright minds to learn and develop through participation in a hands on practical experience. It is an opportunity for students to learn to work as a member of a team or independently to develop problem solving tools and techniques. A realistic and relevant experience, which participants can develop and embed transferable knowledge and skills.

The idea behind the project is to encourage and cultivate the next generation of engineers. Raising awareness, interest and enthusiasm in Engineering through the practical application of Design & Technology, Mathematics and Science. 4x4 in Schools competition links the teams with Engineers from companies such as Jaguar Land Rover and WNT who are available to provide their expertise and support.
