The Kids from Burundi Are O.K.

Six teens from Burundi competed recently in the international robotics contest in Washington, D.C.

None had ever built a robot before but they learned to do it online and Skyping. They did well, coming in 73rd of 160 teams.

When the three-day tournament was over, the entire team disappeared. Two are safely in Canada, and this article says the other four are also safe. They will likely all end up in Canada, which welcomes immigrants as the U.S. used to do.

The kids are alright.
