Some of Illinois' best and brightest technology and engineering students were on the city's North Side today for a robotics competition.

Teams of students from 25 schools from around the state matched wits at the Chicago Math and Science Academy in Rogers Park.

Each team designed and built their own robots to perform a variety of skills for the competition. It was the first time a city school has hosted the event.
