Regional Autonomous Robotics Circuit - Northwest Louisiana, Bossier Civic Center
The Regional Autonomous Robotics Circuit (RARC) is a series of three robotics competitions for students in grades 3-12. The competitions build upon one another and allow students to showcase their STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and cyber skills by competing against other students in their division (elementary, middle and high school) in a series of integrated challenges. RARC NWLA is made possible through partnerships with Bossier Parish School Board, Caddo Parish Public Schools, City of Bossier City, and Sci-Port Discovery Center.
