The UKSEDS Orbex National Rocketry Championship
2020 - 2021
Teams will design and build a rocket to reach the highest apogee possible using any 29mm Cessaroni 2-grain motor.
To align more with the general purpose of rockets, having a payload is a required element in this year’s championship. Plus the addition of bonus points to teams who are able to measure the distance of where their rocket lands to the launchpad and the teams that land nearest get a few more points too. It is looking to be an exciting rocketry championship this year!
