Teens and Their Robots to Compete in 'Superbowl of Smarts'

 Thirty-eight teams of high school students from Arkansas and seven surrounding states will gather at Barnhill Arena April 4-6 to participate in the Razorback Regional FIRST Robotics Competition. The event will showcase original student work: 150-pound robots, designed and built in just six weeks, that can climb and play a wicked game of Frisbee. The competition is hosted by the University of Arkansas College of Engineering. The public is encouraged to attend and admission is free. On Thursday and Friday paid parking is available in the Arkansas Union parking deck accessed from Stadium Drive; on Saturday visitors may use any campus parking space that is not reserved for handicapped parking or marked “reserved at all times.”
