About Dream Big

Dream Big is a new film for IMAX® and giant screen theaters. Produced for all ages, Dream Big showcases engineering’s impressive impact on our world and our lives. The film features amazing engineering projects, along with forward-thinking and compassionate engineers. We've also created hands-on activities and engaging programs to enhance the learning that the film inspires. Dream Big aims to motivate a new generation of engineers and offers everyone the opportunity to experience engineering in a fresh and exciting way.

The Project

Led by the American Society of Civil Engineers, with a coalition of engineering organizations, the Dream Big project is designed to be used by museums, engineers and teachers. It is also a tool for fostering connections between science centers where the giant screen film plays and the volunteers who serve as partners, role models, and experts in local communities. Resources and programs include 50+ hands-on activities, girl-centered events, lesson plans, design challenge exhibits, videos and more. Learn how you can get involved.

The Film

Dream Big leverages the scale of the giant screen to showcase engineering marvels worldwide. From Dubai’s record-high skyscrapers to bridges soaring through clouds, audiences can experience the massive scale and forces of nature that challenge engineers. Dream Big showcases the ingenuity needed to create engineering marvels as well as the compassion that drives engineers to create better lives for all.
