This school looks way nicer than my old one in mexico
Who are these guys?
In robotics we will build many cool things.
That sounds like so much fun!! Let's do it
You will need to work hard with the money you have to build an amazing robot.
This is the most money I have ever seen
Oscar, Lorenzo, Luis, and Christian are boys living in a very poor part of Pheonix. All of them are illegeal immigrants from Mexico trying to find identity in the new American world around them. None of them friends yes
How do you think we could measure the distance of something underwater?
I am so glad you guys called me I have some great ideas about that!
Fredi is a teacher at their poor school. He teaches marine science and robotics and he slowly recruited these boys to join his robotics team.
That PVC glue stinks...
Man this robot is awesome!!
Well you know what I think we may have found our robots name.
Once all the boys are on the team they decide to join a marine science competition the is produced by the Navy and NASA. They decide to raise as much many as they can from their families that are already living below the poverty line... they come away with 600 dollars to compete against well-known colleges such as MIT.
I cannot believe our robot did better than MIT's and we also answered the judges questions better!
To learn how to do the percise things that Fredi and Fredi's partner Allan the boys called large corporations to try to help them figure out the tasks. Most of these heavy duty technology companies liked how the boys were asking for their advice so they let them use their technology for free.
With all of the components the boys built their robot out of PVC pipe and their other miscellaneous iteams to create their robot that was names stinky.
The boys, their teacher, and stinky take a van to Santa Barbra California and compete in the competition doing very well beating many top colleges like MIT. Opening doors to get college schoolarships, citizenship, also making a group of boys from knowing nothing about each other to being best friends.
