UK Youth Rocketry Challenge (UKRoC)

To Infinity & Beyond


  • 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!
