The movie we watched in class

The importance of working together as a team

In the movie we just watched we saw four boys working on making a robot together that could do specific tasks underwater. The boys worked for a long time on the making of the robot, and in the end, it paid off. They won the competition, and that was all because of that they worked together as a team. In the competition, they all knew what they needed to do.

What surprised me on the list

What surprised me the most in the list was that Christian didn't get bullied, he seemed like the one that would be bullied. But it might be that he did not act the exact same way in the movie that he did in the real world, so it does also make sense.

The different teams had different access to materials

The fact that the different schools had different limits on how big budget they had for the robot, some of them did not have as good assumptions. For example, the MIT team had a budget on 18 000+ dollars while the Carl Hayden school had a budget on 800- dollars. So they had to use cheaper materials and think harder on solutions for how to build a cheap but working robot. That way they were more clever than any other team, not only did they win, but they managed to win with a budget robot.

Where can robots be useful today?

Robots can be useful in places where humans physically do the job as fast or good. The robots are, for example useful in markets, storage rooms, like in amazons storage. A place where they already use some robots is in hospitals. And last but not least where the job is too dangerous for humans, robots might be an excellent solution.

How has the situation changed for immigrants in the US

For many years, immigrants in the US has not been welcome. But when Barack Obama became president, conditions changed. He made it so that immigrants that were young in the US could under special conditions stay in the US. He invented this:  Deferred Action  for Childhood Arrivals. But when trump became president, unfortunately he decided to end it right after it was invented. Here you see something Berni Sanders said (Seen on the picture):

President Donald Trump has decided to end the Obama-era program that grants work permits to undocumented immigrants who arrived in the country as children, according to two sources familiar with his thinking. Senior White House aides huddled Sunday afternoon to discuss the rollout of a decision likely to ignite a political firestorm — and fulfill one of the president’s core campaign promises.

  1. Very good visual effect with the highlighting of what Bernie Sanders said and the globe spinning around. Well written and well done Niklas.
