    A student from the northwest suburbs will be one of dozens to head to the White House Tuesday to meet President Obama.

    Harrison Drake, a senior from Rolling Meadows High School, and his teacher will visit Washington D.C., to represent a local robotics team being recognized at the second annual White House Science Fair.

    The WildStang Robotics Team, made up of students from Rolling Meadows, Wheeling and Prospect high schools, won a world championship last spring.

    More than 100 students from over 45 states will exhibit their work and be recognized for their achievements at the fair.
