Who will build the amazing future of our human race? That question sparks a giant-screen adventure unlike any other in DREAM BIG: Engineering Our World, an epically fun tour of inspiration through the visionary advances made by yesterday’s, today’s – and most thrillingly of all, tomorrow’s – engineers.
On Friday, Feb. 17, 2017, the first ever IMAX® movie answering the call of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) initiative, DREAM BIG: Engineering Our World, will premiere in IMAX® and giant-screen theatres across the world.
DREAM BIG: Engineering Our World produced by MacGillivray Freeman Films, in partnership with the American Society of Civil Engineers, and presented by Bechtel Corp., offers a fresh perspective on engineering and aims to inspire kids with diverse backgrounds to become innovators, educators, and leaders who will improve the lives of people across our entire planet throughout the 21st century.
Narrated by Academy Award winner, Jeff Bridges, this is a story that reveals how engineers have changed both everyday lives and entire societies: from the Roman Arch to the Great Wall of China, from one much-needed village bridge to the cosmic International Space Station, from underwater robots to death-defying rollercoasters, wind-defying skyscrapers, and pneumatic tube vehicles that might one day zoom at 700 MPH. The journey spans the globe because engineering is truly a universally shared need – from China and Nepal to Dubai, Australia, and Haiti back to Seattle, San Francisco and Phoenix, Ariz., following a group of engineers from diverse backgrounds, each excited to ask in their own way: “What cool solutions can we come up with next?”
