Young rocketeers shoot for stars
School pupils in Surrey are getting fired up over a science competition.

Twelve teams will take part in the UK Aerospace Youth Rocketry Challenge at Charterhouse school, Surrey, on Friday.

They have to build a rocket that will carry a raw hen's egg to an altitude of 850ft (259m) within 45 seconds and then land undamaged.

The winning team will receive money for their school and get the chance to compete in the American version of the contest in Virginia in May.
