The competition is intended to inspire tomorrow’s engineers and scientists with a national rocket car racing competition involving around 70,000 Year 7 / S1 students in England, Scotland and Wales.
Student teams design and make a foam rocket car and (optionally) wheels and axles.
Visiting Rocketeer teams from the competition’s Navy, Army, RAF and Academic partners have been visiting schools to facilitate an at-school race day to identify the team/s that would go forward to Regional Finals that will be held at 35 Forces bases around the country in late April and May.
We sent two teams to RAF Benson and they came home with trophies for 1st and 3rd place!
The Regional Finals will identify the top 40 teams from the 18,000 competing nationally who will be invited to the national finals to be held at RAF Wittering on the 28th June 2018. Holme Grange won came 1st and 3rd and are through to the National finals.
