Dream Big April 5 at Muscatine Community College
Never be afraid to dream big, the world has been built by individuals who did just that.
That’s something of the premise behind the movie, Dream Big, scheduled for April 5 at Muscatine Community College, 152 Colorado St. The free showing will be held from 5:30 – 7 p.m. in the Student Center.
Dream Big is a huge film. From the Great Wall of China and the world’s tallest buildings, to underwater robots, solar cars and smart, sustainable cities, Dream Big celebrates the human ingenuity behind engineering marvels big and small, and reveals the heart that drives engineers to create better lives for people around the world.
The movie was produced by Academy Award-nominated producers MacGillivray Freeman. Dream Big has already received a number of awards including Best Film of the Year and Best Visual Effects from the Giant Screen Cinema Association, and Outstanding Achievement in Science and Technology from IMA Achievement. It was also named one of the top news stories of the year by Engineering News Record.
Narrated by Academy Award-winning actor Jeff Bridges, Dream Big is an inspiring movie for all ages. It is part of a larger 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. Resources and programs include 50+ hands-on activities, girl-centered events, lesson plans, design challenge exhibits, videos and more.
Dream Big transforms students understanding of engineering and inspires them to learn more about the “E” in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).
The event is open to everyone and includes free pizza so people won’t have to worry about dinner plans prior to the show time. Other activities are also being planned in conjunction with the showing. It is sponsored by Muscatine Community College, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, Kent and Stanley Consultants.
