Robots battled in Chicago Saturday as the Illinois Institute of Technology hosted the Ring It Up robotics competition.

The robots were built by teams of middle and high school students. They earned points by hanging plastic rings on pegs.

Organizers say this was a way for the students to apply what they've learned in math and science classes to a real world challenge.
