SCREENING: Spare Parts

Please join the Center for American Progress' Reel Progress film series and Senator Richard Durbin for an exclusive screening of Spare Parts, a true life story about four Hispanic high school students who form a robotics club under the leadership of their school’s newest teacher, Fredi, played by George Lopez. With no experience, 800 dollars, used car parts and a dream, this rag tag team goes up against the country’s reigning robotics champion, MIT. On their journey, they learn not only how to build a robot- they learn to build a bond that will last a lifetime.
