UK Youth Rocketry Challenge (UKRoC)

Mentors sought for Rocketry Challenge 2018

Our partners, Essex County Council, are once again running the UK Youth Rocketry Challenge (UKRoC) in our region, with the final to be held in March at Stow Maries Aerodrome.

Many local schools have signed up are now seeking mentors who can assist them with the design and build of their rocket(s). Rocket science expertise is not required!

The anticipated time commitment would be perhaps a 1-2 hour meeting every month, although this can be varied according to the needs of the team and the mentor's availability. You would also be welcome to attend the final, which is normally at a weekend.

The following schools need support:

  • Becket Keys
  • Brentwood County High School
  • Clacton County High School
  • The Gilberd School
  • Notley High School
  • Shenfield High School
  • St Marks West Essex Catholic School
  • The Stanway School
  • Tendring Technical College
  • Thurstable School
