Welcome to UKAYRoC

Congratulations to the UK winners who came second at the Internationals!


The UK Aerospace Youth Rocketry Challenge is a great way to engage you – the next generation of engineers – with practical experience of building and executing complex missions. This is an exciting way to learn more about maths and science, with the UK winners getting the chance to compete against teams from France, USA and Japan at the International Finals.

The 2016 International Rocketry Challenge Final took place 14-15 July at Farnborough International Airshow. The UK finalists competed against teams from France, USA and Japan for a chance to be crowned the international winners. Watch the International Final Film to recap all the action!
