- Go see the Dream Big film and take a friend. SWE's All Together blog is going this afternoon to a showing at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. The 42-minute IMAX film from the American Society of Civil Engineers is getting great reviews. Find a theater near you.
- Here's how the film is described: "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, 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."
