South East regional heats for the UK Rocketry Challenge at Stow Maries Aerodrome

We were delighted to be supporting the South East region heats of the UK Youth Rocketry Challenge at Stow Maries Aerodrome in Essex yesterday (3rd April). ADS are the proud organisers of the UK Youth Rocketry Challenge (UKRoC) and have been running the event annually since 2006. The challenge 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 and must adhere to the specific set rules. The competition’s rules and scoring parameters change each year to challenge the students’ ingenuity and encourage a fresh approach to rocket design.

The Nationals!

The 20 top scoring teams from the Regional Events will meet at our National Final in Buckminster, Grantham. 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. Watch the 2017 National Final video here.

 

 

 

And the winner is……..

In first place, Team PRC from Tonbridge School! Well done to all the students involved!

However, we finished the day with 15 qualifying launches, which is a huge improvement from last year! Unfortunately only 20 teams can go to the National Final, so not all will go forward to that.

Final results will be announced on 29 April, once the other regional competitions have taken place.
