Ara the Star Engineer is the story of an inspiring young girl who uses her smarts and grit to solve a big problem.
Ara loves numbers-- BIG numbers. She wants to program her droid DeeDee ("Beep!") to count all the stars in the sky, but she's not sure how.
In this whimsical adventure, Ara visits Innovation Plex to enlist the help of four tech trailblazers -- inspiring real-life engineers at Google who are today's equivalents of Ada Lovelace and Katherine Johnson.
With her new friends, she explores the algorithm of success: coding, courage, creativity, and collaboration.
In the end, Ara discovers that the superpower of science and friendship can solve any problem, and be lots of fun. ("Beeeeep!")
