Students from the George W. Donaghey College of Engineering and Information Technology at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock are excited to announce the 6th annual EIT Chili Cook-off Saturday, Feb. 25.
The event will begin at 4 p.m. in the EIT lobby. Faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to bring their best chili recipes to submit for the competition.
The winner of the chili cook-off will be decided by the taste testing participants. The person who receives the most votes will be presented with the traditional red painted toilet seat.
Along with the chili cook-off, students will have the opportunity to showcase their engineering skills during the CO2 Dragster Race.
“This is a great way for our faculty and students to come together on a more social level,” said Vernard Henley, assistant dean of the college.
Students will work in teams of up to four people, constructing a car from tools provided by EIT student services. Kits are still available and include a block of wood to represent the body of the car, wheels, shaving tools, and a CO2 cartridge.
The winner of the competition will be the team whose car travels 75 feet at the quickest speed. Each team member will receive a $25 reward from Dean Whitman.
