Event Details

Please join GEAR UP Hawai'i and Hawai'i P-20 for a screening of the documentary Underwater Dreams in celebration of National GEAR UP Week.

The film is a modern David versus Goliath story of a low-income high school robotics team that takes on MIT... and wins! More than this triumph, the film weaves duo narratives of the challenges undocumented students face pursuing an education and the transformation that happens to a school when a handful of students push beyond expectations. 

“Very inspirational… it’s a wonderful story and shows you what these kids are capable of…" - Claudia Puig, USA Today's film critic.

“This is the most important and moving film I have seen in years.” –Jonathan Alter, NBC News correspondent

A discussion about the film and takeaways for Hawai'i schools will immediately follow the screening.

Hawai'i P-20 Partnerships for Education

Hawai'i P-20 Partnerships for Education, a statewide partnership led by the Executive Office on Early Learning, the Hawai'i State Department of Education, and the University of Hawai'i System works to strengthen the education pipeline from early childhood through higher education so that all students achieve college and career success. Hawai'i P-20's partners share a sense of urgency about the need to improve Hawai'i's educational outcomes in an increasingly global economy, and have established a goal of 55% of Hawai'i's working age adults having a 2- or 4-year college degree by 2025.
