"Dream Big" plays at the Reel Deal Theater at 10 a.m. on July 15.

One highlight of this month’s ScienceFest is a free screening of Dream Big: Engineering Our World, a movie that takes viewers on a journey of discovery from the world’s tallest building to a bridge higher than the clouds and a solar car race in Australia. The film is narrated by Academy Award-winner Jeff Bridges and offers a fresh perspective on engineering by inspiring kids of diverse backgrounds to become the innovators, educators, and leaders who will improve the lives of people around the world. Dream Big is the perfect encapsulation of what engineering is all about: ordinary people finding ways to defy the impossible and change the world, and their own lives, in the process.

The movie plays in both theaters at the Reel Deal Theater in Los Alamos at 10 a.m. on July 15. The screening is free, and seating is first-come, first serve. Watch the trailer here:
