Dream Big: Engineering Our World

On February 17, 2017, Dream Big: Engineering Our World premieres in IMAX theaters around the country.  This giant-screen feature film offers a unique look at how engineers are making the future by using their creativity and skill to improve lives and reshape the world.

Be prepared for a story that circles the globe and travels through time:

  • from a small, isolated village in Haiti to Shanghai, the world's most populous city;
  • from the ancient Great Wall of China to a modern skyscraper so tall it needed a special engineering twist; and
  • from under water in California to the desert of Australia where two different high school engineering clubs excelled in challenging competitions.

Dream Big will also introduce you to 3 remarkable young women who demonstrate how engineering makes a difference. 

You can find out more – including where you can see the film – on the Dream Big: Engineering Our World website.

Special note to parents and educators: The Dream Big film release is part of a much larger outreach effort in connection with National Engineers Week.  You can find educational materials including detailed plans for activities – some of which are featured in the film – on the education page of the Dream Big website.
