Something BIG is Coming to Engineers Week

Dream Big: Engineering Our World is a HUGE film. Literally. A new film for IMAX® and giant screen theaters premiering during Engineers Week 2017 (February 19 - 25), Dream Big is the first film for the giant screen to showcase the creativity and passion of engineers. The film is accompanied by an extensive educational outreach program. Check out the Dream Big website for educational and outreach resources, to watch the trailer and find a theater near you, or sign up to volunteer at events or activities in your area.
