Wonderful film showing the very best kids can be
17 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An important film I wish all children (and parents) could see. The documentary follows several teams as they come up with an idea for a new toy, build a prototype, and present the idea to a panel of judges. Using team building skills, math, science, business concepts, and communication, this film is a delight to watch. It follows not only the winners, but also the losers and how they deal with the disappointment of not being picked in a gentle and loving way. You can't help getting sucked into routing for your favorite team and being delighted with the kids infectious joy, and the varied skills of the adult team leaders. This film gives me hope that the next generation is going to make the world a better place. Hopefully it will encourage even more schools to send teams to this annual competition.
