How Are Robots and Immigration Policy Connected?
In the early 2000s, four high school students teamed up to enter a national underwater robotics competition. The only problem? As undocumented Mexican immigrants living in landlocked Phoenix, gathering the resources to fund and test their robot seemed impossible. Yet their dedication to collaboration, innovation, and pursuing the American Dream would propel the teenagers in surprising directions. Join the Common Reader Program’s student panel, which will lead a discussion of the overarching themes of Joshua Davis’s Spare Parts, as well as the major implications of immigration reform in our society more broadly. Make sure to read the book so you can participate in our conversation!
