All around the world, engineers are pushing the limits of ingenuity and innovation in unexpected, imaginative, and amazing ways. Dream Big: Engineering Our World, a giant-screen film about engineering, takes viewers on a journey of discovery from the world’s tallest building to a bridge higher than the clouds. Along the way, the audiences witness how today’s engineers are shaping the world of tomorrow.
In partnership with MacGillivray Freeman Films, and presented by the Bechtel Corporation, ASCE is proud to present Dream Big: Engineering Our World.

Every child should Dream Big. Together, we can make that possible.
ASCE and Bechtel, with generous support from the United Engineering Foundation, have set an ambitious goal: to put a copy of he Dream Big film and educational toolkit in every public school in America.
During Engineers Week 2018 (February 13–24) ASCE will launch a website that will allow individuals to place a toolkit in the school of their choice. While the goal is to reach all U.S. public schools, members will have the option to purchase educational DVDs for private & parochial schools, as well as for international schools. (The cost of international distribution will be slightly higher.)
