A team of budding mathematicians and engineers ranked fifth in a national rocket building competition last week.

Pupils from Airedale Academy’s Science Technology Engineers and Maths (STEM) club won £50, a signed book by former Concorde pilot Christopher Orlebar and memberships to the Royal Aeronautical Society for their success in the UK Rocket Competition.

The youngsters built their creation from scratch and launched it 732ft in the air to come fifth in the rocket race.

Science teacher, Steven Miller, said: “They were an absolute credit to the academy over the two day final.”
