NEWEST FILM AT MSI INSPIRES FUTURE ENGINEERS TO DREAM BIG
Dream Big: Engineering Our World opens February 17 in five-story, domed theater
CHICAGO—Soar above the world’s tallest bridge and travel at speeds approaching 700 mph with the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago’s newest film, Dream Big: Engineering Our World. The film celebrates human ingenuity and innovation, revealing the creativity that drives engineers to create better lives for people and a more sustainable future. The film opens February 17, 2017 in MSI’s five-story, domed, wrap-around Giant Dome Theater.
Narrated by Academy Award® winner Jeff Bridges, Dream Big is the first giant-screen project of its kind to promote science, technology, engineering and math. Produced in partnership with the American Society of Civil Engineers and presented by Bechtel Corporation, this film showcases engineering breakthroughs including solar cars and underwater robots, and incredible structural feats like the Great Wall of China. Guests will also witness the inspiring stories of a young woman engineer who builds bridges in underdeveloped countries, a high school robotics team that succeeds against all odds, and many more.
“Parents and teachers are looking for ways to turn kids on to science and engineering,” said director Greg MacGillivray, a two-time Academy Award nominee and chairman of MacGillivray Freeman Films. “With Dream Big, 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.”
Dream Big shows daily at 10 a.m., 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. in the Giant Dome Theater at MSI beginning Thursday, February 17, 2017 through February of 2018.
