Five teenaged Syrian refugees working together as Team Hope led a four-team alliance to win the grand finale of the FIRST Global Challenge 2019 in Dubai.

The third annual robotics competition drew more than 1,500 students from 191 countries.

Team Hope presented two robots, one that educates people on the struggles of refugees, and the other designed to help clean the oceans.

Members of the team said the difficulties they faced in war-torn Syria had motivated them to make the world a better place through robotics and artificial intelligence.
