High school girls build kick-ass robots

#STEM- the field of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, is largely dominated by males.

But one special high school teacher, Fredi Lajvardi, wanted to change that. After coaching an unlikely group of male students to win a national robotics competition against Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Lajvardi decided it was far past time to encourage more female students to get excited about engineering, too.

#SpareParts, a movie based on Fredi and the amazing students from Carl Hayden Community High School, will be released in January 2013, but until, then, read the book!: http://www.amazon.com/Spare-Parts-Undocumented-Teenagers-American/dp/0374534985
