Chicago Public School Students Compete in Midwest Robotics Competition Against Turkey, South Africa

Students from seven different Chicago Public Schools are showcasing their high-tech skills in the biggest robotics competition in the Midwest.

The event is pitting local students against teams from around the world, including Turkey and South Africa.

The competition is taking place over the course of several days and involves a series of games and challenges.

Each team has built a robot that will play in a knockout round, a basketball scrimmage, and eventually, face off in the championship round on Saturday afternoon.

The robots are student-controlled and weigh approximately 150 pounds, measuring up to 6 and a half feet tall.

Despite the competitive atmosphere, there is a strong sense of camaraderie among the students.

Many have overcome significant challenges to participate in the event, including the impact of a 6.4 magnitude earthquake for the team from Turkey and members with a Syrian background.

The competition will continue through tomorrow, with the championship event being held on Saturday.
