Archer City High School students prepare to compete in robotics tournament

ARCHER CITY, TX (KAUZ) - 19 Archer City High school students are headed to Dallas for the BEST Robotics State Tournament on Thursday.

The students involved said this has been a fun experience. Many of them plan to go into the tech industry following graduation and are glad they get to work on their talents while in high school.
