Registrations for UKRoC 2018 have now closed. Registrations for our 2019 competition will be launched later this – check back for more details in the next few months!
Here’s a few reasons why you should enter:
- It’s free to enter and it’s fun! Teams just need to cover the cost of the rocket build and associated equipment (approx. £200-£300).
- An extension to what students are already learning in Science, Technology and Maths – but in an interactive and engaging way.
- It’s a great way for young people to gain hands-on engineering and presentation skills.
- The winning UK team will receive a paid-for trip to Farnborough International Airshow 2018 to compete against the winning teams from America, France and Japan.
- In 2016 Major Tim Peake presented the International Award Presentation and former Apollo 13 astronaut Al Worden attended the competition.
- Cash prizes, certificates and awards for winning teams, and their associated youth group or school.
- Positive media and press opportunities for your youth group or school.
Who can enter: Rocketry is a great opportunity for young people aged 11 – 18 who…
- Have a strong interest in design, maths, art and/or science
- Thrive when working in a team environment
- Enjoy problem solving
- Would relish the opportunity to meet with industry aviation, space leaders and experts
