  • Dream – Build – Create
    Free Engineering Programs in November 2020

  • Dream Big Engineering Our World Movie Poster

    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.

  • November 2020

    The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) is partnering with the STAR Library Network (STAR Net) and its Project BUILD engineering program. Project BUILD is supported by the National Science Foundation. 

    Public libraries and ASCE members across the country are invited to participate in an exciting virtual engineering experience this coming November called Dream, Build, and Create, an introduction to engineers and engineering for people of all ages, especially families and children.

    This inspirational program will offer people a free film screening of the award-winning documentary Dream Big: Engineering Our World on November 10, 14, 17, and 24. In addition to the film, ASCE is organizing several virtual panels in November where patrons can join live conversations with our Dream Teams of young, diverse engineers. Dream Teams will include Cities of the Future, Women in Engineering, Black Engineers, and even a Spanish-language Dream Team.
