Blast off at school rocket building championships in Essex

Video report by ITV News Anglia's Liz Summers

It's a combination that some might think could be tempting fate.

Students, eggs and all the ingredients needed to make a rocket.

But this isn't the latest reality TV show, instead it's the challenge facing students taking part in the UK's largest model rocket competition.

The winners will go up against teams from the UK, Japan and France in the international finals later this year. Liz Summers stood at a safe distance in Stow Maries airfield in Essex to see what's involved.
