Exosia Team comprises of 6 students between the age of 14 and 15 years old. Our team will be representing our school on 1st-3rd November 2019 in Land Rover 4X4 Technology Challenge.
Our school, Kolej PERMATApintar Negara is well-known for its achievements. Our senior team had won 2nd runner up in last year competition.
This challenge is aimed at young people aged 11 – 19 years old which involves 4 to 6 team members working together to design and build a radio controlled 4- wheel-drive (4×4) vehicle to set specifications, that can successfully negotiate a specially designed test track that emulates that of real life and what a full scale 4×4 vehicle can do. Teams entering the challenge will spend a number of weeks and months designing, researching, building and project managing their 4×4 vehicle to enter the international competition and compete against other schools from around the world. Winners will be selected via a judging process to become the Land Rover 4x4 in School Technology Challenge World Champions. The project hopes to raise awareness, interest, enjoyment and enthusiasm in STEM through a practical ‘hands on’ approach and experience.
