Race for the Line Model Rocket Car Competition Great Britain - Season 3


420 Secondary Schools have entered their entire year 7 student cohort. Teams of 4 will design, build and race Micro:bit enabled model rocket cars at up 70 mph across the playground of their school.

Race days will be run by Rocketeer teams from our joint forces programme partners, the RAF, ARMY and NAVY in the Spring term 2018.

40 Forces bases nationwide will host regional finals in late April and early May 2018, and the top 40 teams from the 18,000 competing nationally will be invited to the national finals at RAF Wittering in June 2018.

This competition seeks to be a catalyst for collaborative working in STEM education, please support us in that mission.

In September 2018 for year 8 students the team will launch the Airlander hybrid air vehicles drone competition to support a journey through to GCSE choices in each participating school. This will coincide with the year of the engineer and the 100 year anniversary of the RAF

Primary schools will be supported with a new competition designed to support year 5 and 6 students in STEM. This will be announced after half term.
