La Vida Robot Four Undocumented Teenagers Two Teachers Who Instilled Them with a Crazy Dream and One High Stakes Robot Building Contest Read ↠ 108 A level competition and yet against all odds they won But this is just the beginning for these four whose story which became a key inspiration to the DREAMers movement will go on to include first generation college graduations deportation bean picking in Mexico and service in Afghanistan Joshua Davis' Spare Parts is a story about overcoming insurmountable odds and four young men who proved they were among the most patriotic and talented Americans in this country even as the country tried to kick them ou. Our immigration system AND our education system are a hot mess This true story shows us what is stake and what the possibilities are if we could just get our shit together and start embracing immigration and respecting teachers I cried repeatedly both from joy and frustration as I read I think all educators actually all humans should read this true story of four undocumented young men and their two outstanding high school teachers who beat MIT in an undersea robot contest Read it for an excellent example of what happens when you hire well educated and passionate teachers and then respect them give the freedom to teach and experiment And for much evidence about why immigration matters and the damage that our immigration policies have done to outstanding people I don t want to suggest that only good immigrants like these young men deserve to be in the US The stories shared in this book of young people being rounded up while hanging out at the pizza shop or on a school trip to Niagara Falls jailed and deported are just heartbreaking even if they aren t outstanding scientistsThis book raises so many issues How do four young men each with uniue strengths but not traditionally A students bond together to create an impressivelly innovative robot that can go underwater measure a submarine enter the submarine to retrieve prizes and take a liuid sample from a 12 wide tube Obviously the young men are outstanding but their two teachers are as well I think there is great strength in having two very brilliant and well educated teachers who can feed off and encourage each other These teachers had freedom to allow students in class to experiment and follow dreams and ideas without Guaranteed Viable Curriculum or Common Core They were trusted to provide a valuable education for their students Also they had each other I m not sure one teacher alone would have had the strength or energy to put in the long long hours and emotional support much less have the technical and intellectual ability on their ownBut even after these boys build an incredible robot kept their grades up in all their classes battled college teams with huge sponsors while these boys had a budget of 1000 their college and life choices were still incredibly limited because they were brought to the US by their parents who wanted better lives for their children crawling through breaks in fencing ducking under fences crossing in cars with faked papers All this scientific and innovative brilliance and the boys were excluded from many scholarships and all federal help forced to pay out of state tuition even though their parents had been working and paying taxes in the US Just heartbreaking I can t tell you how many times I cried and cheered confusing my dog profoundly

La Vida Robot Four Undocumented Teenagers Two Teachers Who Instilled Them with a Crazy Dream and One High Stakes Robot Building Contest Read ↠ 108 Inced these impoverished undocumented kids from the desert who had never even seen the ocean that they should try to build an underwater robot And build a robot they did Their robot wasn't pretty especially compared to those of the competition They were going up against some of the best collegiate engineers in the country including a team from MIT backed by a 10000 grant from ExxonMobil The Phoenix teenagers had scraped together less than 1000 and built their robot out of scavenged parts This was never. On one level this book chronicles the achievements of 4 teenage boys illegally brought to the States by their families who inspired by a teacher in their poor high school built a robot and won a national robotics competition sponsored by NASA beating university teams including one from MIT A great story inspirational made into a movie in 2015 Haven t seen the movie but according to the book it s got a Hollywood ending Their real stories haven t ended as happily When the book was written only 1 of the boys had fulfilled his dream of becoming a US citizen and that happened only after a strong letter writing campaign from important people around the country as he was turned down twice The others live in fear of being deported and since they ve been here beyond age 18 they d be banned from applying to return for 10 years So on a second level this book is an indictment of our immigration laws that make it almost impossible for bright young people like these who have achieved against the odds to become citizens even though they were brought here without having had the opportunity even to apply for a green card An important read on both levels in these uneasy times
