About the Film:

Directed by Mary Mazzio. USA. 2014. 85mins

Underwater Dreams tells the epic story of four undocumented Mexican-American high school students who enter a NASA-sponsored robotics contest…and defeat MIT with an ingeniously constructed underwater robot (aptly named “Stinky”). The competition, however, was only the beginning. These boys forged a legacy that could not have been imagined. Their unlikely achievement, in 2004, reverberates a decade later, helping the students who followed them at Carl Hayden Community High School in Arizona to have more confidence and even, in some cases, propelling them to work as engineers and as leaders in Dreamer groups.

Special guests: Join us for a panel discussion on immigration reform and STEM education organized by Friends of Hawaii Robotics following the screening on Sept. 23
