Every child should Dream Big! Together, we can make that possible. The acclaimed giant-screen documentary Dream Big: Engineering Our World has inspired and delighted audiences in museums around the world, surpassing one million viewers in just six months.
Now, with generous support from the United Engineering Foundation, ASCE has set an ambitious goal: to put a copy of the Dream Big film and educational toolkit in every public school in America. The Tulsa ASCE branch has contributed $750, but we need your help to reach every schoo
Give $5 to place a DVD toolkit in the school of your choice.
