The UK Youth Rocketry Challenge (UKRoC) is aimed at students aged 11 – 18 from any secondary schools, colleges, educational facilities or youth groups to design, build and launch a model rocket with a fragile payload.
The rocket must reach a set altitude with specific total flight duration.
The competition’s rules and scoring parameters change each year to challenge the students’ ingenuity and encourage a fresh approach to rocket design.
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).
Entry is now open!
