The acclaimed giant-screen documentary Dream Big: Engineering Our World has inspired and delighted audiences in museums around the world. Now, ASCE with generous support from the United Engineering Foundation (UEF) has set an ambitious goal: to put a copy of the Dream Big film and educational toolkit in every public school in America. To reach every school, we need your help! Give $5 to send a school a toolkit containing: A DVD of the full-length feature film; Teacher’s guide; Companion videos; Downloadable files for classroom use. ASCE has pledged a 1-to-1 match of all donations made by Sections and Branches before April 15 for middle school educational kits. Any amount that you pledge will go twice as far with the match from ASCE headquarters. NCS will designate all funds go only to local schools, thus ensuring your donation is super-charged, i.e. it gets doubled, it goes to your local schools, and it amplifies our efforts to increase the quality of engineering education in our K-12 schools and inspire future generations of civil engineers!
