drp Sponsors Local School in Land Rover's 4X4 Challenge
drp has supported a team of four Year 9 boys, self-named ‘EDGE’ and aged 13-14 years old from King’s School Worcester, with their entry to Land Rover’s ‘4x4 in Schools Technology Challenge’. EDGE, consisting of Ed Cosson, Toby Weymouth, Ed Robins & Alfie Parry, were awarded First Place ‘Development’ category in the UK National Finals on 28th March, as well as the award for Best Engineered Vehicle in their ‘Development’ category.
The aim of the challenge was to design and build a radio-controlled four-wheel drive (4x4) vehicle to set specifications and succeed in a testing off-road course. We assisted the young team in the making of a remote-control car to compete against other schools regionally and nationally. Our team helped in the design and branding of the miniature vehicle and provided them with marketing material such as T-shirts and a display stand to take with them to the Middle of England region heat and, later, the UK National Final at Silverstone. drpvideo also provided Studio 1 at drp’s Kidderminster head office to enable the team produce a video of the car in action to complement their entry, which is viewable at http://www.EDGE4x4.co.uk.
