Quantum Leap Land Rover team

For the last few months, Radu An., Tae Min K., Chris La., Maddy Ke., Ella Hol., and me, Josh Si., have been working towards competing at the Land Rover 4x4 in Schools competition in the Nitra Land Rover factory on the 22nd of January. We make up Quantum Leap, our school’s most recent 4x4 in Schools engineering team.

To prepare for the competition, we built an extremely cool remote-control 4x4 vehicle from scratch, using contemporary manufacturing techniques like 3D printing and plastic vacuum-molding, in addition to building a big interactive display to show our development process at the competition. To support these parts of the project, we also had to raise money through sponsorships and connect with the public through our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages.

When we finally got to the competition, we got the chance to drive our car around an obstacle course (with debatable success), and give a bunch of presentations to judges from all over the UK and Slovakia. At the end of the day, we found out that we hadn’t actually won anything, but we all had fun and learned a lot about engineering, marketing, and STEM in general.

We also made sure to give back to the school’s STEM community, fixing and improving the 3D printer in the STEAM room and purchasing a CNC mill to complement the printer’s abilities.

All in all, even though we didn’t win anything, this project has taught us all things about engineering, marketing, and teamwork, to name a few, and will definitely be an experience that none of us will forget any time soon.
