Dream Big Event
By Victor Aguirre
On May 19, 2018 the ASCE OC YMF K-12 Outreach Committee hosted an educational showing of the movie Dream Big: Engineering Our World at the Frida Cinema located in Downtown Santa Ana. Students ranging from elementary to high school including their parents were encouraged to attend the event for free. The event consisted of two showings of the movie followed by various presentations and hands on activities provided by engineers and engineering students. Over 100 students and parents combined were thrilled to learn about the different engineering disciplines and the science used to build structures and materials that are essential to our daily lives. We want to thank the volunteers and sponsors that took the time to make this event a success! Thank you to the APWA, Geo-Institute, SEI, SHPE, the Sustainability Committee, SWE, WTS, and the UCI & CSULB ASCE student Chapters.
A huge thank you to our event sponsor PACE Advanced Water Engineering and to Mark Thomas for donating giveaways.
