NASA are sponsoring a highly esteemed robotics competition, where students from various schools compete to build a robot that can perform underwater. When four Mexican-American high school kids from Phoenix, Arizona decide to go for it, their parents and teachers are sceptical given that the previous year's winners was a highly funded project at M.I.T. They have very little money indeed, a little under a thousand dollars, but they have a wealth of determination and drive that brings them together to build a fully-functioning and innovative machine made simply from used car parts - despite their lack of technological experience. They may have the guts and the ambition to succeed in such a prestigious event, but the question is whether the judges will see that and value their project based on the heart and soul that has gone into it.

Following graduation from Riverdale High - seriously, were Archie and Jughead her classmates? - squeaky-clean Terri Fletcher (Duff) enrolls in the summer program at an elite performing arts academy. Competition is fierce, and so are the backstage stereotypes. Upon arrival, Terri falls for a British songwriter (Oliver James), befriends the hyperactive geek (Johnny K. Lewis), coaxes the talented recluse (Kat Dennings) out of her shell, and locks horns with the resident snob (Lauren C Mayhew). Who has time to sing when the student body is filled with such cardboard caricatures of standoffish overachievers?
