Spare Parts, Four Undocumented Teenagers, One Ugly Robot, and the Battle for the American Dream

Creator: Joshua Davis | Biography & Autobiography - 2014-12-02

Tells the story of how, with the help of two inspiring science teachers, four undocumented Mexican immigrants in Arizona put together an underwater robot from scavenged parts and went on to win the National Underwater Robotics Competition ...

Publisher: Macmillan

About this book
Four undocumented Mexican American students, two great teachers, one robot-building contest . . . and a major motion pictureIn 2004, four Latino teenagers arrived at the Marine Advanced Technology Education Robotics Competition at the University of California, Santa Barbara. They were born in Mexico but raised in Phoenix, Arizona, where they attended an underfunded public high school. No one had ever suggested to Oscar, Cristian, Luis, or Lorenzo that they might amount to much—but two inspiring science teachers had convinced these impoverished, undocumented kids from the desert who had never even seen the ocean that they should try to build an underwater robot. And build a robot they did. Their robot wasn't pretty, especially compared to those of the competition. They were going up against some of the best collegiate engineers in the country, including a team from MIT backed by a $10,000 grant from ExxonMobil. The Phoenix teenagers had scraped together less than $1,000 and built their robot out of scavenged parts. This was never a level competition—and yet, against all odds . . . they won! But this is just the beginning for these four, whose story—which became a key inspiration to the DREAMers movement—will go on to include first-generation college graduations, deportation, bean-picking in Mexico, and service in Afghanistan. Joshua Davis's Spare Parts is a story about overcoming insurmountable odds and four young men who proved they were among the most patriotic and talented Americans in this country—even as the country tried to kick them out.

    Overall, I'm satisfied.

    The good:If you want to replace the shell of your SP, this is it. It came with a complete shell, buttons, contact pads for said buttons, a screen cover, sticker for the back and a Nintendo emblem for the top. My brother gave me his old sp which he used to carry in the same pocket as his keys. THE HORROR!...Now the sp is looking good as new thanks to this shell replacement.The bad:it does not come with a speaker, or the box depicted in the the image on amazon, I found that pretty dishonest and this is really the only reason why a star was lost.The plastic is not the same quality as what came from Nintendo, but you really shouldn't expect it to be. This is a third party "bootleg" of the real deal, and that said, the quality is as good as it could get. It has some rough edges that you might want to VERY finely sand down, but it should't be necessary. Mine came with a scratch or two, but they weren't too bad.Tips for installation:if... 4/5 Woo - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Dont Listen To All The Negative Reviews!

    Don't listen to all the negative reviews about this product! If your half way technically minded and can accurately follow the instructional videos on youtube, you will have NO problem changing the shell on your gameboy advance sp! I will admit installing the hinges and attaching the screen's ribbon cable to the motherboard can be a bit tricky but its not that hard and youd have to be pretty uncoordinated and/or unpatient to mess this up.Now about the product itself- Its not quite as nice as the original shell was but it still works very well, in fact, I doubt youd even tell the difference. It has more of a matte finish to it compared to the original, so its more scratch resistant. I have absolutely no complaints about it other than the replacement hinges arent quite as smooth as the original ones when opening and closing the screen. This is just a minor gripe that again most people wont even notice.It comes with a tri wing screwdriver and even a new... 5/5 Brett C. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    My SP is better than it was, but there were some quality issues.

    3/5 Joy O'Connell - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Full Parts Replacement Housing Shell Pack for Nintendo Gameboy Advance SP GBA SP(Black)(Battery is Not included) (Video Game) After a decade of wear, my SP was looking a little tired. I ordered a new shell, hoping to fix that. It was an easy process, and the refurbished device works like a charm. The shell is nice, but arrived prescratched. Also, I'd buy your own screwdriver--the supplied one broke before I had even finished dismantling the original.Pros:Comes with the specialty tri wing screwdriverComes with new buttons and stickersEasy to installCons:Tri wing screwdriver broke within first five minutes of useCase arrived with a few scratches Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 6, 2015

    It works - so far...

    3/5 erick alan - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Superior Parts SP 877-323 Aftermarket Piston Driver for Hitachi NR83A, NR83A2 Framing Nailer (885-915, 877-323) (Misc.) It is working fine after a week of use. Had no idea how badly my original driver had worn down. I was worried about quality of this product. I bought one in the 90's that kept unscrewing, another superior driver snapped in half ( the only brand stocked locally at the time). Finally bought a hitachi back then. Seems those issues have been addressed in this product. Not hitachi quality but half the price. A boss shook his head when he find out I bought superior. instead of hitachi. A thing like a driver is mission critical and will cost hundreds of dollars if it fails on the job. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 1, 2016

    A decent replacement pump works with Drinkwell 360 too !

    I'm a supporter of using a watering system for my furry friends. I have 3 cats, and keeping them hydrated with fresh clean water is important to me. I've used quite a few different watering systems, and one thing in common with them is pump failure. I have experienced pump failure between 8 months and 3 years, and I cannot conclude that any one version is better or worse than the other. Remember that these inexpensive pumps run 24 hours a day, and are NOT commercial grade units. If they were, watering system costs would increase substantially. I normally list pros, and cons in my reviews, however today I'll provide lessons learned and hints to increasing the life of your pumps.1. Keep it wet! Over time, I have learned that the biggest factor in long pump life is to NEVER EVER run your pump dry. The motors do not contain bearings, are made of plastic, and need water to keep them from getting too hot or causing premature wear in the pump. If you keep your reservoir full,... 4/5 Bob 2012 (USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Petmate Fresh Flow 120 V Replacement Pump, Black (Misc.)

    NOT the correct replacement for Drinkwell Pagoda Ceramic Pet Fountain

    1/5 Norma L. (DeKalb, IL, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Petmate Fresh Flow 120 V Replacement Pump, Black (Misc.) Less than a month later and it no longer works. I clean the pump weekly, make sure the TWO filters with my fountain are clean or replace them, and it still doesn't work. It is NOT the same pump as the one you get when you purchase the Drinkwell Pagoda ceramic pet water fountain, and I would not recommend you purchase this one for that reason. It does not have enough lift to work properly. Now I have to rush a new pump to get here before I go on vacation.

    Lasted about a week before this replacement pump slowly died

    Got this as a replacement pump for my PetSafe Drinkwell Ceramic Pagoda Fountain. Let me tell you, when I purchased the Pagoda at a pet store (yes, it was a bit pricey) the pump was awesome. Water was coming out of the top of the tower like no tomorrow. Slowly it started to fade until about a month ago it was a slow trickle (five months of service). I had cleaned and replaced the external filters (about once a month), and took the pump apart to clean it (it really wasn't dirty) but the original pump slowly started to get worse, and I decided to replace it.Purchased this replacement pump (yes, I know it doesn't state it's for the Petmate Pagoda fountain, but it fits just fine, just like the original) and even at first, this pump was a pale shade as compared to the original pump. The newly purchased replacement would only pump about a quarter of the water as the original when I pulled it out of the box and installed it. Then, it only got worse.
