Blast off! - launching 2014 Aerospace Rocketry Challenge

Tuesday, December 10, 2013

Meg Munn MP recently teamed up with aerospace apprentices to take part in a rocket launching competition in a park in Westminster. She competed against a number of other Members of Parliament in a friendly but serious challenge.

Apprentices Alanna Green and Lewis Hollingsworth from Marshall Aerospace worked with Meg to assemble and launch air powered rockets. The aim was to achieve the greatest horizontal distance, with the best distance of two launches deciding the winner.

The competition celebrated the launch of the 2014 UK Aerospace Youth Rocketry Challenge (UKAYRoC), where teams of students aged 11-18 years old design, build and launch their own rockets to exacting specifications.

The event coincided with Tomorrow’s Engineers Week an initiative to showcase the many exciting engineering careers available to young people.

Meg said:

“Today’s event offered a fantastic opportunity to meet with some of the bright, ambitious young people who are just starting their engineering careers. The Rocketry Challenge is a brilliant way to show more students what fun engineering really is, and I am keen to encourage schools and colleges to enter the 2014 challenge.”

Schools can find out more about the challenge by visiting: www.ukayroc.org
