Welcome to "Race to the Line" the Global Model Rocket Car Challenge for Schools. 


The Challenge has been completed by over 250,000 students in the last five years.

Last season an all girl team won the global final in the UK with the first 100mph model rocket car in the challenges history.

In response to Covid The Learning Partnership has been forced to completely re-think the way we support STEM education in schools.

Moving forward we must rely upon schools to lead the challenges, whether it is race to the line model rocket cars, gliders, construction challenges or even the world challenge club. We can supply the challenge management area and resources, but schools will need to become much more self-managed and self-funding.

Rocket Motors will be replaced with a CO2 launcher system you can make in school with a 3D printer and laser cutter. We want to recruit Hub schools with this kit to volunteer to support schools close to you that do not have this kit. If you would like to be a HUB school for your area please contact us on 01869 346 609.

We have sourced a new supplier of bio-compostable foam blocks for the challenge who is matching the price of the previous blocks at £5.00 per block. We need to place a minimum order of 5000 blocks, so at least 100 schools buying a box of 50 blocks is required for us to place the order.

If you wish to take part?

you must please register your interest by clicking the register button and place a pre-order for your bio-compostable foam blocks (and wheels if you need them) by clicking here  and placing your pre-order for the number of blocks you would like to receive. If we reach 5000 blocks ordered by Christmas this year, then we will order and dispatch to you in January. If we do not then your pre-order will be refunded.

If you would like any assistance with the sign up process please contact or call +44 (0)1869 346609.
