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 11-19 who design, test and build scale-model remote control vehicles in lessons or at after-school STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) clubs.

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.
