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.

  • 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
