From September 2012, the Toyota Technology Challenge will be known as the Toyota STEM Challenge
This change in name reflects the wide range of groups taking part in the competition from Design Technology, Science, Young Engineers, STEM clubs and more.
For these familiar with the Challenge, the events will remain the same for 2012/13 although the Project Folder has been made simpler which will allow teams more time to focus on the design, construction and testing of their vehicles.
The Toyota STEM Challenge is a fun and affordable national competition aimed at Key Stages 3 & 4 (age 11-16) for Design and Technology, ICT, Science and Maths students. The challenge invites you to design and build an environmentally friendly model vehicle and apply knowledge and understanding from a wide range of curriculum subjects including Mathematics and English. There are two categories to the challenge: the Solar power category and the PIC microcontroller category. To pick up some tips, check out the Videos section.
Registration for next year's challenge will commence in September 2013
