MIT Gets Punked

I love when an underdog triumphs.

Read all about how a team of 4 high school kids schooled the MIT team in the 2004 National ROV Competition for High School & College Students, organized by NASA and the Marine Advanced Technology Education Center.

The team from Carl Hayden Community High School consisted of 4 undocumented Mexican emigrants who, because of their legal status, pretty much have no chance of attending a university like MIT. Read the article, and if you are moved to help out - you can contribute to a scholarship fund for the students here.

It's an amazing story - I'm sure Disney will be releasing the film adaptation shortly.
