If you need any further convincing, here’s Ellen O’Connor’s review (Ellen is the museum’s Program Manager for the William L. McKnight Omnitheater, so if anyone’s an expert on giant-screen films, it’s her!):

“Highly recommended, Dream Big is an inspiring film that shows us just how vital and integrated the science of engineering is to our everyday lives. Engineers shape our world and keep us safe, while also creating innovations that make human life more manageable and sustainable. This film features Menzer Pehlivan, who, at the age of 13, experienced an earthquake in her home country of Turkey, propelling her to become a geotechnical engineer focusing on engineering for seismic safety. Narrated by Jeff Bridges.”
