Another one, sort of similar to October Sky, is a recent film called Spare Parts. It's about a team from a mostly Latino high school in Phoenix who compete in a robotics competition against several well-funded college teams. Note that I have not seen the movie, but I did read the Wired magazine article on which it's based.
