I was delighted to be part of the engineering judging panel for the North Wales regional final held at Venue Cymru, Llandudno.
The Jaguar Primary School Challenge is a STEM competition, open to students aged 6-11 years old and involves designing and manufacturing the fastest car possible within a set of rules. The pupils follow the design and engineering processes employed by real engineering companies like Jaguar Land Rover. The students research, design and create model racing cars, learning about aerodynamic forces, efficiency, mathematics and the principles of design.
Teams are also given the chance to experiment with the electrification of their vehicles, considering the design considerations of using alternative energy sources. Teams then compete to be crowned National Champions, producing design portfolios, presenting to the judges and culminating in the ultimate test of speed with a pulsating head-to-head race.
The challenge is your first step on the road to becoming a real Engineer one day… So belt up for the journey of a lifetime!
There were some fantastic models on display and lots of very inspired children. A great first step on the road to becoming a future engineer.
