Becomes the only UAE school representing the country at the World Finals in Abu Dhabi 

Dubai, United Arab Emirates (December 23, 2017) –   Repton School Dubai participated recently in the World Finals for the Land Rover 4x4 Schools Technology Challenge for the first time with a five member team performing creditably to win awards for Sustainability and the Best Newcomer. Repton School Dubai was the only school in the UAE representing the country at the World Finals, which took place in Abu Dhabi, with the school coming 10th in the world at the end of the challenge. 

The challenge involved team members working together to design and build a radio controlled four-wheel drive (4x4) vehicle to set specifications. The vehicle needed to successfully negotiate a specially designed test track emulating real life and perform as a full scale 4x4 vehicle would do in an off-road situation.  

The team from Repton Dubai, drawn from Year 9-IB2, had been working hard over the last three months to test their four wheel drive model while working on their individual roles as an overall Team manager, Resource manager, Graphics designer, Design engineer and Manufacturing engineer. The team were rated on their design portfolios, a verbal presentation, the team uniform and identity, the engineering aspects of the car in addition to the speed around the track.
 

According to David Cook, Headmaster, Repton School Dubai, 'I would like to congratulate the entire team for their superb performance in the World Finals. Repton's participation in the 2017-18 edition of the Land Rover 4x4 in Schools Technology Challenge was a wonderful opportunity for our students to be inspired to become the next generation of engineers and showcase the caliber of our students who are competing on the world stage. It gives them insights into practical applications of STEM subjects while also helping them develop key skills such as communication, presenting and team work. At Repton, we are committed to giving our students access to many such initiatives to help them fulfil their inherent potential while increasing student learning and engagement. We are proud to represent the UAE in the World Finals.”

In an effort to encourage the young participants, GT Auto Centre, which is a prominent car service company in Dubai, provided informative sessions on ‘steering and suspension systems' and sponsored a Jaguar Land Rover SUV car which was  utilized to create ‘built-in tracks with obstacles' for the challenge.
