Underwater Dreams Screening & Panel Discussion featuring Allan Cameron
The panel will be moderatated by Jon Corippo, CUE's Director of Academic Innovation, and will include Dr. Cameron along with CUE members Julie Goo, Diane Main, Bill Selak and Sean Williams.
Dr. Allan Cameron (Ph.D, Elementary Education) taught computer programming at Carl Hayden High School in Phoenix, AZ. Along with fellow teacher Fredi Lagvardi, they started an afterschool robotics team. The team and underwater robot, Stinky, became the material for film "Spare Parts & Underwater Dreams."
Underwater Dreams, a documentary written and directed by Mary Mazzio, and narrated by Michael Peña, is an epic story of how Mexican immigrants learned how to build an underwater robot from Home Depot parts and to defeat engineering powerhouse MIT in the process. The competition, however, was only the beginning. These boys forged a legacy that could not have been imagined.
If you enjoy the film and want to bring more STEAM and a student-centric pedagogy to YOUR school or classroom, join an esteemed panel of learning experts featuring Allan Cameron who will share exciting STEAM and leadership examples from their schools, answer questions, and give some extra details to your vision of a 21st century school that truly changes student lives.
