LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A mechanical engineering design team from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock is set to compete in an international event after winning first-place among 18 teams in the Student Professional Development Conference in Lubbock, Texas.
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers organized the event that was held April 4-6 at Texas Tech University.
This year's event called for the team to design a small unmanned air vehicle to carry cargo through two gates, drop a payload and return to the starting point.
UALR team members Owen Camp, Clint Maddox, David Ramirez, and Dale Wilson have been invited to compete in the 2014 international expo that is to be held Nov. 14-20 in Montreal.Copyright 2014 The Associated Press.
