THE CHALLENGE PARTNERS

Helping to develop and support the challenge each year.

WELCOME TO THE CHALLENGE

Now in its 15th season the Challenge is getting more popular than ever before, having engaged and motivated more than 1,000,000 young people over the last decade. Our aims are simple; to help raise standards of achievement in mathematics across an age range of 8 to 16, to help motivate students generally, to show students of all abilities that maths can be fun and that there is a reason for doing it. We are also committed to helping them consider taking up careers in engineering wherever possible.

Using tried and tested ‘Cloud’ based software that simulates the setting up of a racing car, students, working in small teams, complete a series of STEM relevant tasks in an effort to produce the perfect car. This ‘virtual’ car is then entered into a competitive race in the hope of winning it. The Challenge also involves students racing against teams from other schools and countries. The competitiveness of the Challenge will keep your students focussed for months!
