The classes will work together, sending clues to one another as they guide the robot from its "crash-landing" in Montreal to the classroom in Los Angeles. The students will combine creative writing, geography, math, and science and more in trying to navigate the robot home. Wherever their minds take the robot, filmmakers and photographers will follow, documenting the robot's struggle as it travels across North America.
