What We Believe

Team Mission Statement

The mission of the Chicago Knights is to promote in young people an appreciation of math, science, technology, and engineering as strategic tools for success regardless of their chosen career path. All skills will be learned and applied in an inclusive and collaborative environment that partners teens of various skill levels, interests, and heritage with caring and professional adults, all focused on the same goal.

Team Vision

Students who belong to the Chicago Knights robotics team will develop problem solving skills, positive character traits, and an appreciation for technology and engineering as a means to improve their lives and the lives of those around them. They will be inspired to be part of something larger than themselves and to gain the skills, experiences, and education necessary to accomplish any goal. They will do so in an environment that celebrates team accomplishments while encouraging individual excellence. Team members will in turn share their knowledge, enthusiasm, and appreciation for science and technology with the larger community.
