More than 150 talented future software engineers from schools in 16 countries gathered in Abu Dhabi for the Land Rover 4×4 in Schools Technology Challenge world finals. The bright young engineers, aged 11-19, used computer coding to programme miniature remote-controlled four-wheel-drive vehicles they have designed and built for a two-day competition at the Yas Marina Circuit. One of the challenges saw the vehicles negotiate a demanding course that wound its way over and through Land Rover Discovery SUVs.
Jaguar Land Rover and Getty Images have announced a partnership on International Women’s Day to highlight the need for a more realistic visual representation of female engineers. More people than ever are searching images of women in science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM) careers, yet results are often outdated and don’t reflect today’s exciting and varied roles. This partnership aims to change that.
