Dream Big Movie + Ticket Giveaway
Dream Big: Engineering Our World opens Friday 2/17 at the IMAX theater at the California Science Center and MomsLA is giving away a 4-pack of tickets and a set of special merchandise from the film. Scroll down for instructions on how to enter the contest.
I took my son and a couple of his friends to see a preview of the film, hosted by the California Science Center, because they all are interested in studying engineering, and I was hoping that they would get inspired.
Narrated by Academy Award® winner Jeff Bridges, Dream Big: Engineering Our World is designed to transform how we think about engineering. “From the Great Wall of China and the world’s tallest buildings to underwater robots, solar car races and smart, sustainable cities, Dream Big celebrates the human ingenuity behind engineering marvels big and small, and reveals the compassion and creativity that drive engineers to create better lives for people around the world.”
The film is visually stunning, as you would expect from this creative team, who’ve been working in the IMAX format since its creation. There are soaring vistas and terrifying heights, as well as truly moving stories of accomplishment. Although short on specifics, the film is nonetheless successful at giving a glimpse of what’s possible when human beings put their mind to the task of solving problems.
And the film also succeeds in helping to break down the stereotypical notion that all engineers are white men. The accomplishments of women and men of color are highlighted in the film, and it takes a truly International look at the issue.
Dream Big opens this Friday, February 17th, at the California Science Center. We are giving away a 4-pack of tickets plus a merchandise package pictured here. Winner must provide a valid US mailing address for receipt of prize. No transportation provided. See Rafflecopter below for details.
