Robotics club movie rocks at library

Posted on: February 5, 2018

The STEM program is doing good work introducing science technology engineering and mathematics to grade school and high school students. These studies have grown thanks to all the teachers who work hard to make it happen. Now the Murphy Library is showing a film based on a real story about a teacher adding a robotics club to the STEM studies and four Hispanic students who are interested.

This Thursday at 6 p.m. the library is showing Spare Parts, a 2015 film based on a true story about teenagers with no experience, a few hundred dollars, used car parts and a dream.   The film is rated PG-13 so it is for high school STEM students and older. Running time is 114 minutes.

The teacher discovers an underwater robotics competition and the students go for it!   Ultimately they find themselves competing with none other than that incredible university, MIT!
