April 3, 2009 --A team of Chicago public school students has qualified for a national science competition. The students from Burnside Scholastic Academy are regional winners of the ExploraVision Awards competition. Their mission was to imagine ideas for future technologies.
The 4th and 5th graders came up with a project called "Albert" designed to aid autistic children. They are now designing a website to be submitted for national judging.
Their winning project was chosen from nearly 4,400 regional entries.
