Film Screening: Dream Big

January 18 | 6:00 pm

Free admission. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.

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. Narrated by Academy Award® winner Jeff Bridges, the film was produced by the award-winning team at MacGillivray Freeman Films in partnership with the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). The film moves beyond stereotypes highlighting in particular the work of women such as Angelica Hernandez, a Mexican immigrant turned leading Arizona engineer who got her start in the legendary robotics club at Carl Hayden High School in Phoenix, AZ and Avery Bang, a civil engineer with a background in art who builds bridges in underdeveloped countries, connecting people with new opportunities. Avery Bang will be on hand to introduce the film and take part in short panel talk with local engineers Cody Tharpe, Structural Engineer and Principal of Tharpe Engineering Group; Whitney Holt, Simulation & Software Engineer for Gulfstream; and Bryan Knakiewicz, Ph.D., Assistant Professor for Civil Engineering Technology at Savannah State University. A reception will follow the panel.

This program is sponsored by Tharpe Engineering Group and the Society of Women Engineers, Chatham County Chapter.
