Thank you and I will pass along the comments to the kids.

Flannelman, it was held on the campus at UALR on the 25th.

Because they did so well, we have been ask to attend another competition in Bryant. This one we not only have to have the quick stop racers but also have to make CO2 dragsters and balsa bridges. So we are back to the research stage again as we have never made either before.

Cool! I am partial to UALR since I graduated from there. They have a pretty good engineering department.

I was impressed with UALR and the kids had a great time. Several kids are interested in going to their engineering camp this summer.

I bet it would be good. UALR has invested a lot of money in technology and resources for the students. I really enjoyed my time there. The engineering instructors were very helpful to me.
