Underwater Dreams, narrated by Michael Peña, is the true story of how the sons of
undocumented Mexican immigrants learned how to build underwater robots. And go up against MIT in the process.
This is how it transpired. Two energetic high school science teachers, on a whim, decided to
enter their high school, a Title I school where most of the students live in poverty, into a
sophisticated underwater robotics competition sponsored by the NASA and the Office of Naval Research, among others.
