About the OMNI film Dream Big: Engineering Our World

Who will build the amazing future of our human race? That question sparks a giant-screen adventure unlike any other in Dream Big: Engineering Our World, an epically fun tour of inspiration through the visionary advances made by yesterday’s, today’s, and most thrillingly of all, tomorrow’s engineers.
Throughout human history, engineers have been behind the scenes forging an ingenious variety of lifesaving, even civilization altering, structures, gadgets, and gizmos. Yet never before have engineers been so vital to humanity and so visible in culture as they are now, as young women and men literally shoot for the stars and bust through old barriers to create a world only they can imagine.

Narrated by Academy Award winner Jeff Bridges, this is the story told by Dream Big, marking the first film for giant-screen theaters to answer the call of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) initiative, which offers a fresh perspective on engineering and aims to inspire kids of diverse backgrounds to become the innovators, educators and leaders who will improve the lives of people across our entire planet throughout the 21st Century.

*This one day only, see the film Dream Big: Engineering Our World in the OMNI Theater for a special discounted rate of only $5.00 per ticket (ages 3+).

Free event located in the lobby of the Science Spectrum. Standard museum rates apply for those choosing to attend the museum.
