After submitting your registration form there are three main stages of the competition; Regional Events, The National Finals and The International Finals.
The Regional Events
In order to attend a Regional Event, you must submit your registration form before the deadline date. You and your team will then attend a Regional Event near you to launch your rocket. Your rocket launch will be scored by our Rocketeer Experts.
The best scoring team from each Regional Event will automatically go through to the UK National Final.
We are excited to announce that we have confirmed the dates for the Regional Events.
Scotland – Monday 20 March – POSTPONED DUE TO POOR WEATHER CONDITIONS
UPDATE: Due to poor weather conditions predicted for the Glasgow region on Monday 20 March, we have had to postpone this regional event. Rocket launching is a weather dependent hobby and our rocketeer experts have advised that a new date should be rescheduled for this regional event.
We are not canceling this regional event in any way, only rescheduling. Once a new date has been confirmed, we will inform all participating teams. In the mean time, we recommend all participating teams to continue building and testing their rockets.

The National Final
The 20 best teams from the Regional Events will meet at our National Final in Essex. Similar to the Regional Events, you and your team will launch your rocket and if you win, well then you can start packing your suitcase as you’ll be going to Paris to compete in the International Finals! More information on the National Finals will follow in due course.
