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.

    Flaws, missing pieces, overall okay if you need a replacement shell.

    I was just replacing the shell from my old Gameboy, I wasn't fond of the blue and whoever had it before me really damaged the shell itself. This is an okay replacement. Obvious missing paint in parts, not everything fits together, and there are a couple of screws and pieces missing, specifically in mine, the two screw segments to attach the top to the bottom, forming a working joint. It came with the caps though. I took mine from my old Gameboy and made due. The screws that it came with were not all the right size so there are three little spots where the screws nearly push through the plastic on the other side, one on either side of the start/select buttons and one below them... Which for me is fine, but others may not be satisfied. The screw drivers were fine too, they did their job.Overall, this is an "okay" product, because there are obvious flaws, the pieces don't fit well (can see the split next to the ports on the back where the two bottom sections... 3/5 Hadrea Batt - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Missing a crucial piece, but good product overall

    4/5 hunnib416 (Virginia, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Timorn Full Parts Housing Shell Pack Replacement for Nintendo GBA SP Gameboy Advance SP (Pink Pack) (Kitchen) Easy to assemble, shipped quickly. Deducted one star because it doesn't come with the hinges; If you order this, you'll have to save the ones from your old system and reuse them.
