To kick off National Engineers Week (Feb. 19th-25th, 2017), the California Science Center brings to the big screen an all-new 3D film promoting the education STEM movement, Dream Big 3D: Engineering Our World. From the Great Wall of China and the world's tallest buildings to underwater robots, solar cars and smart, sustainable cities Dream Big 3D: Engineering Our World showcases engineering marvels big and small, with inspiring human stories that reveal the compassion and creativity that drive engineers to create better lives for people and a more sustainable future for us all.
Now Playing: Dream Big 3D: Engineering Our World
Dream Big 3D takes audiences on an especially fun tour of inspiration through the visionary advances made by yesterday's, today's, and most of all tomorrow's engineers. The film's eclectic, stereotype-busting engineer cast includes:
Menzer Pehlivan, a Turkish-American who grew up wanting to be a movie star until a huge earthquake revealed another way to make a major impact on the world (engineering buildings that keep people safe).
Parents and teachers are looking for ways to turn kids on to science and engineering,” shares director Greg MacGillivray, a two-time Academy Award® nominee and chairman of MacGillivray Freeman Films. “With Dream Big 3D, we wanted to bring something new to that effort with an entertaining, visually spectacular film full of stirring human stories that reveal the impact engineers have on our society. We hope it energizes kids of all ages, especially girls, to think about engineering as a meaningful way to help others and leave a positive mark on the world.”
Narrated by Academy Award® winner Jeff Bridges, Dream Big: Engineering Our World is a first of its kind film for IMAX® and giant screen theatres that will transform how we think about engineering.
I am a believer in encouraging our youth to make a difference in the world, and Dream Big 3D encourages young people to do just that,” says narrator Jeff Bridges.
With the support of the American Society of Civil Engineers, Dream Big 3D hopes to light fires of aspiration, even in unexpected places. In addition to the release of Dream Big 3D, now playing in theaters, Dream Big 3D offers an entire education program with resources to help enhance the learning from the film.
