This coming weekend, the 4×4 in Schools engineering students will take part in the 4×4 in School World Finals in Abu Dhabi. They will compete against 23 other teams from 18 countries.

The challenge involves between three and six team members working together to design and build a radio controlled four-wheel drive (4×4) vehicle to set specifications. The vehicle must be able to successfully negotiate a specially designed test trackĀ emulating real life, and it must perform as a full scale 4×4 vehicle would do in an off-road situation.

Today the following students will depart for Abu Dhabi (UAE):
