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 movie about engineering, will take viewers on a journey of discovery from the world’s tallest building to a bridge higher than the clouds. Along the way, the audience will witness how today’s engineers are shaping the world of tomorrow.
In partnership with the Science Museum of Virginia, the Richmond Branch is hosting a premiere event for the viewing of Dream Big. Students will receive free admission to the movie in the Museum’s giant screen theater, The Dome, as well as complimentary admission to the Museum’s galleries during the event. Following the movie, ASCE will provide a hands-on building workshop, giving students the opportunity to try their hand at engineering challenges similar to those they see during the movie. Can you build a dome structure out of common household materials that can hold 60 pennies (or more!)?

Call for Volunteers
To make the Dream Big event a success, we need help from our members. We need volunteers to help teams of students during the Dome Building Challenge, and want to make sure we have enough people on hand to guide, encourage and answer questions. Volunteers will also receive free admission to the movie compliments of the Science Museum and ASCE Richmond. If you are interested in volunteering during the event, please contact Ashley Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
