After long and careful consideration, Toyota Manufacturing UK have decided that the Toyota STEM Challenge (TSC), formerly known as the Toyota Technology Challenge, will not operate for the foreseeable future. Instead Toyota Manufacturing UK will concentrate their efforts on the other education activities which they are already involved in.

Toyota and Rapid are grateful to the support and commitment each other have given to the TSC over the past 10 years and wish every success for the future.

The Toyota STEM Challenge has reached tens of thousands of Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 students and helped them develop an interest in engineering as well as improving project work and presentation skills.

Rapid will look for a new partner to support the Challenge but until this time the Challenge events will not take place.

Rapid are still working closely with the VEX Robotics Competition, VEX IQ Challenge and Jaguar Maths in Motion Challenge to ensure that they offer a wide variety of national STEM competitions for schools.
