More about Lorenzo Santillan:

In 2004, Lorenzo Santillan and three of his classmates at an urban high school in Phoenix entered an underwater robotics competition sponsored by NASA and the U.S. Navy. Santillan had never seen the ocean and his school didn’t have a swimming pool, nor was he a citizen. Born in Mexico, he was raised in the U.S. without documentation. Despite these obstacles, Santillan and his teammates went on to beat MIT to win the national championship. The story of that victory is told in the film and book Spare Parts (the film stars George Lopez, Carlos Pena, Marisa Tomei and Jamie Lee Curtis). It is also the subject of the documentary Underwater Dreams. As a result of his work in robotics, Santillan became an early symbol of the Dreamer Movement and remains a steadfast advocate for immigration reform.
