This week we – the UK Youth Rocketry Challenge (UKROC) – have launched our new look branding and website thanks to help from event organisers ADS and our sponsors and partners Lockheed Martin, UKspace and the Royal Aeronautical Society.

At UKROC, the UK’s largest youth model rocket competition, we aim to enthuse more young people about the subjects needed in aerospace, defence, security and space industries – science, technology, engineering and maths. We believe – and hope you do too – that it is a fun and engaging way for young people in the UK to learn more about engineering and physics.

Our new website reflects a revitalised approach to the competition, with a focus on greater engagement with you throughout the competition, an easier process to sign up and a more modern design. It’s UKROC as you’ve never seen it before!

You can now meet our rocketeers who will be guiding you through the process of building your rocket with hints and tips along the way! Pay attention to what they say as they’ll form part of the judging panels for the regional and national finals.

We will also be launching an Instagram page where we will be running competitions and hope to showcase participants’ progress throughout the competition.

Stay tuned and be sure to check back to our new website for the latest updates and information!
