MPS & Apprentices launch 2014 UK Rocketry Challenge

More than 25 MPs, on Wednesday 6th November, teamed up with aerospace apprentices from all over the UK to take part in a rocket launching competition to celebrate the launch of the 2014 UK Aerospace Youth Rocketry Challenge (UKAYRoC) which sees teams of students aged 11-18 years old design, build and launch their own rockets to exacting specifications.

The competition, which took place in Victoria Tower Gardens, Westminster, coincided with Tomorrow’s Engineers Week – a Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) initiative to showcase the many exciting engineering careers options available to young people.
