The CCA Scene

The CCA Scene

This week we caught up with a couple of students – Olav Noordhuis and Misha Abramovich - who participate in the Land Rover 4x4 in Schools Technology Challenge. This is a brand new CCA for our BISB students which is already proving to be a very exciting project!

 

Olav, can you explain the aim of the Land Rover 4x4 Challenge?

The 4x4 Land Rover Challenge is an international competition organised by Jaguar Land Rover. The aim of the challenge is to design and create a radio-controlled car that is capable of traversing an obstacle course within the shortest time possible. My team and I are currently in the research phase of the design and production of a 4x4 vehicle, the outcomes of which we will incorporate into our own vehicle. While Jaguar Land Rover provides the bare bones of the chassis and motor, the body, wheels and suspension is up to us to design and build. We aim to have the final design finished before December and have an internal competition at this school before Christmas. The winning team will then proceed to the world finals in April to go against other schools from all over the world!

 

Misha, can you tell me a bit about your involvement in the Land Rover 4x4 Challenge CCA…

 

I am a member of a Co-Curricular Activity called the Land Rover 4x4 in Schools Technology Challenge. This is a project consisting of the design and construction of an efficient, well-performing miniature off-road vehicle to compete in an international challenge. I love participating in this endeavour as it allows for creative thinking and challenging problem-solving. In the image, you can see me and a member of my team, Olaf, examining the newly arrived starter kit for our car. I must say I was very pleased when I saw it, as I expected a collection of parts and instead was greeted with a functional car which we can add to and tweak over the near future. I look forward to it!
