For the 4x4 in Schools Challenge, Denford Ltd and Land Rover invite key stage 4 students to design and build an off-road vehicle that can be driven around an obstacle course by remote control. The vehicles use electric motors to power all four wheels and must be able to climb 45-degree slopes. Each team is also required to make a 10-minute presentation to Land Rover engineers highlighting the design, technology and business aspects involved. Regional and national finals will be held.

The Web for the Future competition challenges people aged under 30 to come up with ideas for making innovative use of the internet by December 22.
