The Jaguar Primary Schools Challenge challenges teams of young people aged 5-11 to project manage, design and manufacture a racing car. Teams of children aged 5-7 take part in the 2D challenge and design a race car made from card complete with wheels and body. The design is then printed and assembled ready to race. Older pupils aged 8-11 design and manufacture a race car in the 3D Challenge using CADCAM technology to create a balsa wood model.
Students test their vehicles and undergo scrutineering before racing head-to-head against teams from other schools at the competition stage.
The challenge teaches students about a range of science and engineering subjects such as design, manufacture and aerodynamics. Each team works with a Jaguar Land Rover STEM ambassador who mentors them throughout the process.
