PG-13 | | Drama
Four Hispanic high school students form a robotics club. With no experience, 800 bucks, used car parts and a dream, this rag tag team goes up against the country's reigning robotics champion, MIT.
When the principal (Jamie Lee Curtis) gives the club the keys to the old school van, Louis, noting the poor condition and trash that falls out when he opens the door, mentions he saw something similar in a horror movie, much to the chagrin of Jamie Lee Curtis's character. This is a nod to her multiple roles in horror films early in her career.
Okay folks, everybody take your seats please.
Right before the boys begin their robotics competition, the scoreboard shows Carl Hayes high school in fourth place but the boys haven't even begun competing yet.
